 You MUST read each Change description to determine if a Change will    
 impact your site.  All changes have been made in this MXG Library.     
 Member CHANGES always identifies the actual version and release of     
 MXG Software that is contained in that library.                        
 The CHANGES selection on our homepage at            
 is always the most current information on MXG Software status,         
 and is frequently updated.                                             
 Important changes are also posted to the MXG-L ListServer, which is    
 also described by a selection on the homepage.  Please subscribe.      
 The actual code implementation of some changes in MXG SOURCLIB may be  
 different than described in the change text (which might have printed  
 only the critical part of the correction that need be made by users).  
 Scan each source member named in any impacting change for any comments 
 at the beginning of the member for additional documentation, since the 
 documentation of new datasets, variables, validation status, and notes,
 are often found in comments in the source members.

NEXTCHANGE: Version 17.                                                 
======Changes thru 17.398 were in MXG 17.17 dated Feb  7, 2000======    
Change 17.398  DEVICE Activity Report can now utilize the INTERVAL and  
ANALRMFR       MYTIME parameters for summarization tailoring.  All of   
Feb  6, 2000   the ANALRMFR reports will eventually hav these options.  
Change 17.397  The revised CICINTRV dataset did not contain variable    
VMXGCICI       DATETIME, which is archaic and STARTIME should be used   
Feb  6, 2000   in your reports, but now they will still work.           
Change 17.396  Support for EMC's InfoMovers Product's SMF record.       
EXINMVCL       creates two datasets:                                    
EXINMVSR          INMVCLNT - Infomover Client Record Subtype 1          
IMACINMV          INMVSRVR - Infomover Server Record Subtype 2          
TYPEINMV       These records look much like FTP records, but do not     
TYPSINMV       contain IP addresses, but do have additional statistics. 
VMACINMV       However, the start and end time variables INFSTART/END   
VMXGINIT       are bad, containing INFEND= '38970868'x which should be  
Feb  6, 2000   close to the record's SMFTIME of '005F7F11'x.            
Feb  7, 2000   EMC has opened tracking number 2951232 to resolve, but   
               was unaware of the error.                                
   Thanks to Charles Piggott, SAS Europe, GERMANY.                      
   Thanks to Mr. Ragaglia, ITS - FIAT, ITALY.                           
======Changes thru 17.395 were in MXG 17.11 dated Feb  2, 2000======    
Change 17.395  Change 15.268 was supposed to have added DURATM=INTERVAL,
ASUMHSM        to the VMXGSUM invocation in ASUMHSM, but was overlooked 
Feb  2, 2000   until now. And work datasets HSMINTVL/HSMSTAT are now    
               deleted at the end of execution of ASMHSM.               
   Thanks to Chris Weston, SAS Institute ITSV, USA.                     
======Changes thru 17.394 were in MXG 17.11 dated Jan 31, 2000======    
Change 17.394  Example had three sets of pairs of strange characters in 
ANALBATW       lines 77, 78, and 170; those characters should each be   
Jan 31, 2000   an exclamation point, since a pair of exclamation points 
               are used for character string concatenation (instead of  
               long vertical bars, precisely because exclamation points 
               are correctly translated by Rhumba, but long vertical    
               bars are not, and I missed that error when I edited this 
               contribution that had gone thru Rhumba enroute to MXG).  
   Thanks to Raff Rushton, Kaiser Permanente, USA.                      
Change 17.393  IBM RMF-like CACHE Subsystem Activity Report can now be  
ANALRMFR       created by ANALRMFR. New REPORT=CACHE argument will      
Jan 31, 2000   create the report from TYPE74CA Cache DASD records.      
   Thanks to Jiann-Shiun Huang, CIGNA, USA.                             
Change 17.392  MXG 17.01-17.11, on ASCII (PC or Workstations) only.  To 
AUTOEXEC       make AUTOEXEC and CONFIGxx members consistent, I added   
CONFIG         OPTIONS S=72 S2=72 into the AUTOEXEC member in MXG 17.01,
CONFIGV7       but only today did Chuck discover that those options have
CONFIGV8       entirely different meanings to SAS under MVS than under  
Jan 31, 2000   ASCII!  Originally they were needed to prevent SAS from  
               reading source statement columns 73-80, because that's   
               where MVS fixed length files are numbered, and under MVS 
               with fixed length input, options S=72/S2=72 do set the   
               MAXIMUM column to be read.  However, under PC/unix, with 
               variable length -SYSIN input, SAS documents that they    
               instead set the MINIMUM column to be read, causing SAS to
               skip input columns 1-71!  When PC SAS read that OPTIONS  
               statement in AUTOEXEC.SAS, it began ignoring columns 1-71
               in remaining lines, and never read nor ran the %VMXGINIT 
               statement that followed that OPTIONS statement!          
               Fortunately, those options are now deleted from AUTOEXEC 
               (and for consistency, also from the CONFIGxx members),   
               because MXG Software has been unnumbered since 1992.     
               P.S. I keep several members in the SAS root 
               directory and copy the one I want (kinda like JCL) into  
               the AUTOEXEC.SAS member and then start SAS.  However, you
               can also change the autoexec using                       
                c:\sas\sas.exe -config 'c:\mxg\sourclib\'     
                               -autoexec 'c:\mxg\sourclib\' 
               either in batch execution or in separate shortcuts for   
               your differing file allocations, etc.                    
                  Making MXG.SOURCLIB VB on MVS reduced it from 150 cyl 
                  to 95 cylinders, reduced BUILDPDB EXCPs for compile   
                  from 13,326 to 12,886, and CPU time from 45 to 43 sec.
                  It doesn't hardly seem worthwhile!                    
               Change 18.147 reinstated S=72,S2=72 in CONFIGV8. 29JUN00.
               But S=72,S2=72 should NOT be in your AUTOEXEC.SAS file.  
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.                                     
Change 17.391 -CICINTRV dataset creation logic was wrong, causing the   
CICINTRV       non-INT event records (REQ/USS/EOD) to be put in the     
VMXGCICI       wrong interval.  But IBM caused STARTIME to be wrong in  
VMXGDUR        INT interval records, because DURATM was found wrong:    
VMXGSUM           CICDS Interval records with DURATM=03:00:00 and the   
Jan 30, 2000      COLLTIME=06:00:00 (so then STARTIME=03:00:00), but    
                  CICSSTCK=03:48:00 when this region started.  The      
                  interval record has SMFSTINO=1, but that interval     
                  number is reset at midnight!  Since the CICDS record  
                  has the dispatcher durations, adding DSGTWT=DSGTDT    
                  showed the true duration of this interval was 02:12:00
                  and the IBM DURATION of 3 hours was wrong!            
               MXG uses COLLTIME to group records.  The COLLTIME in the 
               INT records is the end-of-interval value and is the same 
               in all INT records for that interval (e.g. 03:00:00),    
               which VMXGCICI floored correctly to 03:00:00 for summary.
               However, because the COLLTIME in the EOD, REQ and USS    
               records is a distinct event time (e.g. 03:05:01.99 for a 
               file close), it is not the end of interval, so VMXGCICI  
               incorrectly floored that COLLTIME back to the 03:00:00   
               end time of the prior interval.   This logic error was   
               corrected by adding the INTERVAL value to the COLLTIME   
               for the non-INT records and then flooring that sum back  
               to the end of this interval.                             
                  This works for timed intervals, but INTERVAL=SHIFT is 
                  not supported at this time, as there is no obvious    
                  way to determine the end of shift.  Call if wanted.   
              -STARTIME is now calculated based on the DSGTDT+DSGTWT or 
               DURATDS from the dispatcher record, if one is found, and 
               the STARTIME will be exact if the COLLTIME is exact and  
               the DURATDS is within 30 seconds of exact.  If there were
               no CICDS records for an interval both the STARTIME and   
               DURATM will be set missing and COLLTIME will be the end  
               of interval.                                             
              -Variable SMFSTRQT is now kept in PDB.CICINTRV to identify
               the source (EOD/INT/REQ/USS).                            
              -New INTERVAL=EOD option will combine all of the records  
               for a region's execution together and give you total     
               resources for each execution.                            
              -New INTERVAL=THREEHR option is an attempt to match IBM's 
               default interval, and works fine as long as all regions  
               create interval records.                                 
              -But you can still get strange results if you request     
               CICINTRV to be summarized at an INTERVAL that is smaller 
               that your CICS interval, or if a region writes EOD,REQ   
               and USS but doesn't write interval records:  a region    
               started at 01:00, wrote three USS CICFCR close records at
               05:05:, and then wrote an EOD record at shutdown at      
               12:00.  CICINTRV with hourly default created one obs for 
               the 05:00-06:00 event, with only the FCR counts, and then
               the EOD record created an overlaping 01:00-12:00         
               observation with all other measurements.

                 with an observation for each segment in this job, but  
                 the CPUMRDTM and CPUMRITM are summed across all of the 
                 remote segments and the sum is kept in TYPE30_V, _4,   
                 and TYPE30_5 datasets, as well as being kept in the

                 If your remote systems are of different speeds, you    
                 may want to normalize these remote CPU times before

Change 17.384  Support for Lotus Domino Server Release 5.02 SMF 108,

VMAC108        existing subtype 1 datasets (with a heuristic algorithm  
VMXGINIT       to convert GMT to local until IBM adds the GMT Offset).  
Jan 26, 2000   The new subtype 3 Monitoring and Tuning data record now

                  which was not IBM's intention, and those counters will
                  be fixed in Release 5.03 later this year.  The MXG    
                  _STY1083 SORT macro deaccumulates those variables only
                  if the record is from Release 5.02, but you will need 
                  to add  _STY1083 in your EXPDBOUT member if you add   
                  SMF 108 record processing to you BUILDPDB.            
                - These MXG subtype 3 variables are set by environmental
                  server variables, rather than being measurements:

                  If you don't change the corresponding environmental   
                  variable at your installation, a default value is put 
                  in the SMF record.  For the 2nd-4th fields, default   
                  values are meaningless: FFFFFFFF FFFF000 F900, (so    
                  variables DOMTLMCS, DOMTMXCS and DOMTTMOT are set     
                  missing if they contain those values).

               without both JOB and READTIME (the "job log"), they are

Change 17.378  Type 74 subtype 4 (Coupling Facility) records caused MXG 
VMAC74         to "INPUT STATEMENT EXCEEDED" because only 12 of the 18  
Jan 24, 2000   structures had complete data in the RMF record.  Whenever
               the total size of the structure Request Data and Cache   
               Data sections is greater than 32760, IBM creates multiple
               "broken" records from the "large" record, but the 74.4   
               "broken" records, unlike the 74.1 and 74.2, are invalid. 
               Instead of RMF writing one SMF record with 12 structure  
               Request Data sections and the associated 134 Cache Data  
               sections, and then writing a second record with the other
               6 structure's Request Data sections and the associated 2 
               Cache Data sections, RMF wrote a first record containing 
               all 18 structure Request Data sections and the 134 Cache 
               Data sections for structures 1-12, and then RMF wrote a  
               second SMF record containing only the two remaining Cache
               Data sections (one each for structure 13 and 14), but as 
               neither the Structure nor Request Data sections are in   
               that second record, it is IMPOSSIBLE for MXG to decode   
               the second broken record.                                
               The record has SMF74RAN=1, indicating the "Reassembly    
               Area" exists, but that design (to reassemble multiple    
               "broken" records into a large record in the virtual      
               memory of the reading program) requires offsets from one 
               SMF record to be used to input fields in another SMF     
               record, and that algorithm fails unless all of the SMF   
               broken records are adjacent and found in the input SMF   
               file, which cannot be guaranteed (as, for example, when  
               the first broken record is the last record in today's SMF
               file, or if the SMF data was presorted).                 
               "Broken" records and reassembly areas are not new, but   
               IBM has previously never spanned logical data fields     
               between two physical records.  Both the 74 subtype 1 and 
               subtype 2 records are "broken" when there are many       
               devices, but each "broken" record is self-contained and  
               can be decoded with no dependency on other records.  The 
               required solution for the type 74 subtype 4 record is for
               IBM to write self contained data records.  The first     
               record should contain only as many Request Data sections 
               as will fit with their associated Cache Data sections.   
               Second and subsequent records must contain the Product,  
               Local Coupling Facility, and Structure data sections, and
               then as many Request Data and their Cache Data sections  
               that will fit together.                                  
               To circumvent the error, an additional condition:        
                    AND CDSILOC+SMF744CL LT LENGTH                      
               was inserted in the existing IF statement                
                 IF R744CDSI GT 0 AND R744CDNE GE 1 THEN DO;            
               before the THEN, so that the missing cache data sections 
               are skipped (causing missing values in TYPE74ST).  Thus  
               far, only a few bad 74.4 records have been found per     
               day on this OS/390 R2.8 system.                          
               While IBM's RMF Reporter does handle these broken records
               if they are found in the same SMF input file (which RMF  
               has to first sort for the reassembly algorithm), if the  
               second record is not in today's data, the RMF Report just
               skips that interval in its reports!                      
               In conversation with RMF developers, they have now agreed
               to revise their design so that when "broken records" must
               be written, they will be self-contained and not dependent
               on the contents of other records for decoding.           
               This investigation also uncovered an MXG oversight; only 
               the first cache data section was read for each structure,
               but there are a few structures that have as many as 63   
               cache data sections, (but only two of those sections had 
               any non-zero counter values!).  Now MXG sums all of the  
               cache data section counters for each structure.

Change 17.377  Change 17.290 changed SORT fields, but this JCL example  
JCLIMSL6       was overlooked (LG and L5 were correct). It should be:

Change 17.370  This test version of VMXGSUM enables a SAS VIEW in the   
XMXGSUM        first datastep to reduce time and resources (CPU, I/O,   
Jan 19, 2000   and especially DASD space, since a VIEW is essentially a 
               pipe that avoids hardening a dataset.  This version also 
               allows you to create the output dataset as a view with   
               OUTDATA=X/VIEW=X, syntax (but of course you must use that
               dataset before you invoke VMXGSUM again).  This member   
               will become VMXGSUM in the next version, but is placed   
               here for wider testing; copy this XMXGSUM into VMXGSUM

Change 17.367  NETSPY NSPYAPPL dataset had missing values for response  
EXNSPYAP       time and percentages when NETRSPN6 (computed number of   
VMACNSPY       LU6.2 responses) was zero.  Logic was added to use the   
Jan 15, 2000   TOTRSPN6 (total number of LU 6.2 responses) if NETRSPN6  
               is zero.  Additionally, exit EXNSPYAP tested only TRANSNO
               or OUTPUTNO, which suppressed output of any interval that
               had LU6.2 traffic but no 3270 traffic.  The test now also
               tests TOTRSPN6 so that LU6.2-only intervals are output.

Change 17.366  Deleted TMS volumes still in the TMC that had DENX=00x   
VMACTMS5       printed DENSITY IS MISSING and a hex dump of the record  
Jan 14, 2000   on the log, with no other impact.  The existing test     
               ELSE IF DENX=0DEX THEN DEN=0; was expanded to read       
               ELSE IF (DENX=0DEX OR DEL='Y') THEN DEN=0;  and that     
               block of code was relocated to after DEL='Y' is set.

Change 17.365  The _Sdddddd and _Bdddddd macros (SORT and BY list) have 
VMACTCP        been updated so they can now be used.  The _SUBTCP5 macro
Jan 13, 2000   was deleted, as it was never referenced; the statistics  
               record is recognized by length, not by subtype (which was
               user-settable and thus not reliable!).

               TYPELMS  - This code had not been updated in a long time.

                          were also corrected, and the code now runs    
                          under ASCII as well as EBCDIC versions of SAS.
                          These changes support Sutmyn/VTS/LMS 3.4.

Change 17.362  Documentation only; no code was changed. Highwatermark   
VMACTMO2       and lowatermark values in TMON for CICS/ESA 2.0 (TCE)    
Jan 13, 2000   statistics interval records will be always zeroes after  
               applying SYSMOD TH01288 to TMON, but the HWM values in   
               the TI record will still be valid, as they are obtained  
               differently than the TCE records.  The SYSMOD text has an
               extensive discussion of why the TCE HWM/LWM values cannot
               be calculated when the TCE interval is different than the
               CICS statistics interval.  These fields in these records

Change 17.361  Extension to Change 17.339 for EREP records.  Now, all   
VMACEREP       EREP record types are tested and will be bypassed (and   
Jan 12, 2000   and MXG WARNING message printed on the log) if any of the
               invalid record bits are enabled; previously only the     
               record types that had experienced bad bits were          
               protected.  IBM's EREP writes out truncated records when 
               it runs out of buffer space, and sometimes EREP doesn't  
               edit the record and only writes out what's in the buffer,
               and sometimes EREP writes out incomplete records.  Also, 
               MCH '13'x record conditionally inputs ERRORID by testing 
               length in LRBMLNH to avoid STOPOVER.

Change 17.360  The RMFINTRV/VMXGRMFI enhancements added in MXG 17.09    
VMXGRMFI       have been revised and corrected, so the errors and fixes 
RMFINTRV       apply only to the 17.09 code, but all of the new stuff   
TRNDRMFN       now works!  Your existing IMACWORK member will continue  
Jan 12, 2000   to work to define your workloads, if you do nothing, but 
Jan 20, 2000   now you can EDIT member RMFINTRV (instead of IMACWORK) in
               your USERID.SOURCLIB to create new workloads either in   
               addition to your IMACWORK workloads, or instead of, by   
               ignoring in IMACWORK completely.  Member RMFINTRV invokes
               %VMXGRMFI, so you EDIT RMFINTRV to change the arguments. 
               Remember, you NEVER change member VMXGRMFI; you only read
               it for its documentation of the arguments in comments.   
               Then, in your RMFINTRV member, you invoke %VMXGRMFI with 
               your chosen workload definitions, parameters, etc.       
               Member RMFINTRV has documentation and examples in its    
               To match output to input sums exactly, all of the length 
               4 variables in RMFINTRV are now stored in 8 bytes.  The  
               truncation when stored in four bytes is only in the 7th  
               significant digit, so using length 4 is not wrong, but   
               with a daily totaly of 1,000,000 seconds, that caused a  
               visually-obvious-even-if-not-significant difference of   
               0.1 of those million seconds lost between RMF & RMFINTRV.
               Since I wasted a full day chasing down that difference, I
               decided the small increase in DASD space would be worth  
               you never having to ask why there was any difference!    
               RMFINTRV now uses SAS VIEWS to pass data from one step to
               another without using DASD space, but now, an ignorable  
               note "A stored DATA STEP view cannot run under a         
               different operating system" is printed on the SAS log.   
               Some additional documentation comments.                  
               Specifying IMACWORK=NO may cause UNINITIALIZED VARIABLE  
               messages on the SAS log for the old variables that you   
               no longer want.  Putting a comment block aroung the      
               label statement in your EXRMFINT member will eliminate   
               those messages, but they have no impact.                 
               Any workload can be broken into periods, with a set of   
               variables for each period, including response time,      
               transaction count, and swap count as has always been     
               done for the TSO workload.  You need to tell VMXGRMFI    
               how many periods to be mapped with the syntax:           
               See PERIODS= in member VMXGRMFI.                         
               If you specify to use Report Classes/Perfgrps, but you   
               also say to use your IMACWORK member, and that IMACWORK  
               member still contains the default to delete Report stuff 
               the IMACWORK will have deleted the Report stuff before   
               the new definitions are used.  You will need to revise   
               your IMACWORK member to permit use of Report stuff.      
               Trending on the new RMFINTRV variables can now also be   
               done, with this new VMXGRMFI's TRENDIN=, TRENDOUT=,      
               TRENDBY=, and TRNDINTV= arguments, and by setting PDB=.  
               Member TRNDRMFN is an example of the new syntax that     
               will invoke VMXGRMFI to create TREND.TRNDRMFI with all   
               of the new workload variables.                           
               These 17.09-only errors were corrected:                  
              -The default IMACWORK=YES caused MXG error message that   
               RMFINTRV CPU TIMES DO NOT MATCH because OTHRCPU was      
               included twice in the creation of variable CPU72TM.      
               17.09 sites can remove the OTHRCPU from the end of:      
               OTHRCPU is the fallthru workload for undefined PERFGRP or
               SRVCLASS that were not mapped in your IMACWORK, so if all
               work was mapped, then OTHRCPU will be zero and this error
               does not occur.                                          
              -That error message does NOT set a return code nor stop   
               your BUILDPDB job (because once you see the error and    
               fix your workload definitions in your IMACWORK member    
               or in your RMFINTRV invocation of %VMXGRMFI, you can     
               simply re-run the RMFINTRV program to re-create the      
               PDB.RMFINTRV dataset, without re-reading SMF data.       
              -Detailed validation of 17.09 corrected values in a few   
               variables from TYPE71 and TYPE74 datasets.

Change 17.359  VMXGSUM fails if variable names are created in lower case
VMXGSUM        and KEEPALL=NO default is used with SAS V7/V8, as that   
Jan 12, 2000   space-saving option invokes logic to figure out what     
               variables need to be kept, and because the output dataset
               created by PROC CONTENTS that contains the list of       
               variable names that exist has lower case values in       
               variable NAME, but the dataset created by parsing of the 
               arguments (like SUMBY=) that contains the list of        
               variables that are needed has upper case values in its   
               variable NAME, which then causes the MERGE matchup:      
                MERGE A (IN=INA) B (B=INB); BY NAME; IF INA AND INB;    
               to fail, as it sees those NAMEs as different values.     
               And since there is no SAS facility for case-insensitive  
               character tests nor case-insensitive MERGEing, three     
               UPCASE() functions were inserted in the three places     
               where variable NAME is read from the PROC CONTENTS output
               I discovered this one while creating CHANGE 17.358, and  
               accidentally used lower case in my test program, but it  
               was very nasty in impact and not obviously caused.  There
               was no error condition, but the output dataset had only  
               17 observations instead of 212; there were a few MISSING 
               VALUES messages on the log during MXGSUM1 creation.  Only
               when the SUMBY variables were printed was it found that  
               one of them did not exist in the output dataset, which   
               led to the discovery and fix.                            
               Using argument KEEPALL=YES will circumvent this error,   
               because that bypasses the NAMEs matchup, but it can waste
               //WORK space if there are many unused variables.         
               Ain't mixed case fun?????                                
Change 17.358  An additional sample NETSPY report that replicates the   
ANALNSPY       MICS SNTNSS report from MXG's NSPYLU dataset was added to
Jan 12, 2000   the examples in ANALNSPY.  (However, the MICS report does
               not correctly count input transactions; the MXG report   
               prints both the MICS number and the true number).

Change 17.357  To modify BUILDPDB to copy CICS Statistics datasets to   
EXPDBOUT       your PDB, you should insert this code in EXPDBOUT:       
Jan 12, 2000       _S110                                                
Jan 20, 2000       MACRO _SCICEXC  %                                    
               The BUILDPDB writes all CICS Statistics datasets to the  
               work file (to later create PDB.CICINTRV), but those 50+  
               individual CICxxxx datasets are not copied into the PDB  
               by default (they can be large; if you don't ask for them,
               they won't waste any space in your PDB).  That macro     
               invocation of _S110 sorts each TYPE110 dataset to the    
               PDB, and the two MACRO redefinitions to null out the     
               sorts of datasets CICSEXEC and CICSYSTM are needed       
               because BUILDPDB will try to sort them later in its own  
               logic, after the EXPDBOUT exit has been executed.        
               Note: if you don't want to create any observations from  
               the type 110 subtype 2 CICS statistics records, add this 
               statement:    IF ID=110 AND SUBTYPE=2 THEN DELETE; in

MONTHBLD       RPRTCLAS at the end of MACRO _BTY72GO will not impact the

VMACSYNC       contained multiple bits, variable CACHFWn was created but
Jan  8, 2000   not kept, and two new flag variables were not decoded.   
               Now, CONTIGn and CACHFWn are kept and right, and two new 
               variables are decoded and kept:

               the UCB address in variables UNIT1-UNIT32 is now the four
               digit character address, so their stored length was

Change 17.349  IBM Documentation of TELNET LOGF Date and Time Fields was
VMACTCP        wrong, causing MXG variable TELLOGFT to be wrong.        
Jan  7, 2000   Instead of being the time of logoff, the time field at   
               offset 82-85 is the elapsed duration of the session! And 
               the date field at 86-89 is redundant with the SMF date   
               field (and this is the date field that IBM's APAR PQ34359
               plans to change from the non-standard yyyydddF format to 
               0cyydddF in spite of its uselessness!).  Adding the      
               session duration and that date field created a value on  
               Jan 3, 2000, for a session that ended Jan 1, which made  
               this look like a Year 2000 problem, but it was just bad  
               documentation!  Now, TELLOGFT is the LOGF datetime value,
               new variable TELLOGON is the calculated LOGN datetime    
               value, and new variable TELLOGTM is the elapsed session

VMACZARA       Release 1.3 is the only Y2K Ready version of ZARA, and   
Jan  5, 2000   the record format was changed to the API records, so you 
               will need this change to support ZARA records.  In       
               addition to 1.3 record changes, MXG's logic for the

Change 17.343  Variable NEXTENT, the number of extents on this volume,  
ANALDSET       was added to dataset DSETOPEN created by ANALDSET.  The  
Jan  3, 2000   DCOLLECT/TYPEDCOL is probably better for analysis of     
Feb  2, 2000   dataset extents, because DCOLLECT sees all datasets on a 
               volume at the time DCOLLECT is run, while ANALDSET only  
               sees datasets that were closed in input SMF file time    
               interval (SMF type 14,15,64).  Nevertheless, if you need 
               to track which job and which open is causing datasets to 
               extend, using this revised ANALDSET will now provide     
               NEXTENT for both VSAM and non-VSAM files.  The structure 
               of ANALDSET was also revised; no longer do you need to   
               IEBUPDTE step to create the temporary tailoring PDS      
               library; the revised program now tailors instream using  
               %LET MACKEEP= architecture.                              
               Feb 2: _N30, _N1415, _N64 added to null all datasets and 
               then define the wanted; creation of new TYPE30MR caused  
               the earlier revision to fail, but now its futurized.

Change 17.342  Year 2000.  TYPE1415 variables EXPDT and CRDATE were not 
VMAC1415       converted to yyyyddd format (they were overlooked in     
VMXGINIT       Change 16.330) and are still in cyyddd format, so they   
Dec 31, 1999   print as 100001 for 1Jan2000.  This change adds in the

               The incorrect equation produced dates that were either

======Changes thru 17.339 were in MXG 17.09 dated Dec 22, 1999======    
VMACEREP       because the HDRIS flag bits were not being tested for all
Dec 21, 1999   record subtypes.  IBM's EREP writes out truncated records
               when it runs out of buffer space, it sometimes doesn't   
               edit the record but writes out what's in the buffer, and 
               writes out incomplete records, all of which are flagged  
               by HDRIS and BYTE0 flag bytes.  MXG covered most but not 
               all cases, writing out an MXG WARNING that EREP had      
               created bad records, but now all cases are protected.    
   Thanks to Jerry Urbaniak, Peoples Energy Corporation, USA.           
Change 17.338 -The calculation of BPHITRAT, Buffer Pool Hit Ratio, in   
VMACDB2        DB2STATB dataset was revised based on Don's research: The
Dec 20, 1999   new algorithm substitutes QBSTRIO for QBSTSIO, and       
               restores QBSTSPP, which was removed due to negatives:    
              -QBSTSPP had been removed when MXG had negative ratios,   
               but it is better to use it (as it includes all prefetch  
               pages, regardless of whether these pages were discarded  
               before actually being used by the application), so that  
               negative values indicates a potentially serious problem  
               that could be overlooked without QBSTSPP: pages that are 
               read via prefetch, discarded before use, and then read   
               via synchronous sequential read.  Large values in QBSTSIO
               would also be true for this case, but negative BPHITRAT  
               would be less likely to be overlooked.  Without QBSTSPP, 
               the equation calculated terrific buffer hit ratios that  
               were meaningless, since they did not consider the number 
               of pages that were read via normal sequential prefetch.

Dec 21, 1999   In addition, variable STC13TIM is now corrected by the   
               addition of DEL6070 (the delta seconds between unix's    
               1970 epoch and SAS's 1960 epoch - see Change 17.195),    
               and further protected in case STC changes that to the

               And more:  All of the VSM timestamps (except SMFTIME) are
               on GMT, and there is no offset provided!                 
               And finally, just in time for the 17.09 build, the bit

Dec  6, 1999   the unit of work, but this value is meaningless, as the  
               multiple waits in the TOR, AOR, etc., were summed.  Now, 
               the WTIRIOTM in ASUMUOW is the WTIRIOTM from the first   
               transaction, which is also the source of IRESPTM, as this

Change 17.322 -Parameter SYNC59 will correct the RMFINTRV interval for  
EXRMFINT       sites still stuck with SYNC(59) in SMFPRMxx in PARMLIB.  
RMFINTRV       Because MICS originally used the end-of-interval SMFTIME 
VMXGRMFI       to summarize data, they required the RMF interval to be  
Nov 30, 1999   at 59 minutes rather than on the exact hour.  This new   
Dec 21, 1999   parameter will "correct" the STARTIME in PDB.RMFINTRV    
               by adding one minute to STARTIME and ENDTIME so your old 
               13:59 to 14:59 report shows 14:00 to 15:00.              
              -Member IMACKEEP was only included if PDB=SMF.            
              -Parameter IMACWORK=NO did not function in VMXGRMFI, and  
               it has been corrected, redefined, and redocumented in    
               member VMXGRMFI.  The default IMACWORK=YES causes MXG to 
               use definitions in member IMACWORK to create workloads in
               dataset PDB.RMFINTRV in addition to any workloads that   
               are created in the WORKnn= parameters in your %VMXGRMFI  
               invocation.  Now, if IMACWORK=NO is specified, not only  
               is the INCLUDE of IMACWORK suppressed, but also the old  
               MXG workload variables (BATxxxx,TSOxxxx,..,OTHnxxxx) will
               NOT be created in PDB.RMFINTRV; only the workloads that  
               you define in your %VMXGRMFI invocation will create      
               workload variables (but you can still create workloads   
               with those old prefixes in your invocation and they will 
               be kept).                                                
              -Member RMFINTRV now invokes %VMXGRMFI to create the data 
               set PDB.RMFINTRV, using the IMACWORK definitions, to     
               exploit the VMXGRMFI performance enhancements (by using  
               VMXGSUM, especially in SAS V8, when entire data steps can
               be skipped due to the new PROC MEANS INHERIT feature).   
              -An example of how you can invoke VMXGRMFI multiple times 
               to create additional "RMFINTRV" datasets that are at the

               sample VMXGRMFI invocations in member RMFINTRV.          
              -If you have tailored EXRMFINT to provide labels for OTHxx
               variables, your definitions will be used for RMFINTRV,   
               but if you use VMXGRMFI to create a different dataset    
               name (like RMFINTHR), you will first need to change the  
               OUTPUT in your EXRMFINT to read OUTPUT _LRMFINT ;  cause 
               if you don't, you'll get a 455-185 error due to your old

Change 17.321  Support for IIS Log provides event records with identity 
EXIISLOG       of user, IP Address, byte counts, etc. in new dataset    
IMACIISL       IISLOG. This support reads the #FIELDS list of fields and
TYPEIISL       populates only those variables in your log records.  All 
VMACIISL       possible IIS Log variables are kept in IISLOG dataset, so
Nov 27, 1999   compression is strongly recommended to eliminate wasted  
Dec 19, 1999   space, especially since many character variables are     
               defined as $64, but usually contain far fewer characters.
               Of course you can always use MACRO _KIISLOG to drop any  
               unwanted variables as well.

Change 17.320  The logic to detect the last-complete-interval-time to   
ASUMTALO       control SPINTALO was imperfect, and could cause part of  
Nov 24, 1999   the data for an hour to be split into two separate obs   
Dec  5, 1999   in two day's separate PDB.ASUMTALO datasets.  The logic  
Dec 20, 1999   was revised, which required a change in the sort order of
               dataset PDB.ASUMTALO to now be BY DEVICE DEVNR ALOCSTRT. 
               In addition, we are now using SAS Views to "pipe" data   
               and avoid physical writing and then reading records.     
               This works fine, but prints notes on the log reading:    
               "A stored DATA STEP view cannot run under a different    
                operating system.", which has no impact.

Change 17.317  ABEND 2415 due to no RECFM=U in //NULLPDS DD in SAS proc,
MXGSAS         and message "INVALID RECFM is DCB NOT (U|F|V)" is printed
               on your SYSMSG, if your SMS ACS allocation rules for new,
Nov 23, 1999   temporary PDS libraries leaves RECFM blank, and you are  
Nov 29, 1999   using MXG 17.04 or later.  The permanent fix from SAS is 
Jan 31, 2000   in Usage Note G645 for V6, Usage Note 1651 for V8, is to 
               add RECFM=U to the //NULLPDS DD statement in SAS proc.   
               The ABEND was precipitated by MXG 17.04, which added an  
               INFILE read of //SOURCLIB during initialization, but as  
               SOURCLIB is also in SASAUTOS, SAS opened that DD, which  
               concatenates the //NULLPDS DD, and SAS cannot tolerate   
               a blank value for RECFM when an INFILE is opened.        
               The MXGSAS JCL Procedure was changed, but if you use     
               // EXEC SAS instead of // EXEC MXGSAS, you will need to  
               add RECFM=U to the //NULLPDS DD in the SAS procedure.    
               The //NULLPDS DD statement exists in the SAS JCL proc,   
               but it is there only for maintenance and testing, and it 
               and was included in MXGSAS only for consistency.  That   
               default was changed from only DCB=BLKSIZE=6160, to now   
               Adding RECFM=FB to //NULLPDS fixed the ABEND and it was  
               my initial circumvention, because MXG 17.04+ reads from  
               the //SASAUTOS DD, which points to RECFM=FB datasets.    
               Now, SAS Technical Support and I now agree that RECFM=U  
               is slightly the better choice:  Both work fine now, but  
               NULLPDS is also used in //STEPLIB, which is read by IBM  
               programs, so using RECFM=U protects if a future OS/390   
               release decides not to tolerate RECFM=FB in STEPLIB.

               tests for KW25ADSP were stripped of the right eight dots.
                  eg, the line IF KW25ADSP='........1........'B THEN ...

Change 17.315  MXG 17.08 only.  I introduced typos into IMS Log members 
ASMIMSL6       when I updated the MXG library from the tested members,

Nov 23, 1999     New statement  ENDTIME=STRTTIME; was inserted after    
                 the WSRVTS=ENDTIME-NEWSQ6; statement (line 864).       
               - ASMIMSL6/L5/LG: Three statements must be changed:

                     Blank line before label P031000C must be removed.  
               I thought that my revisions had been re-tested before    
               MXG 17.08 was sent, but it is now painfully obvious that 
               they were not!

Nov 12, 1999   old IMACPDB and instead using the new  %LET ADDnn= macro 
               variables will correct the error, but this change also   
               protects by using the same logic in BUILD005 to create a

======Changes thru 17.308 were in MXG 17.08 dated Nov 12, 1999======    
Change 17.308  Support for the SQL*NET Network Information Vector, added
VMACORAC       to the Oracle user SMF record.  New variables IPADDR and 
Nov 12, 1999   PORTNR for TCP/IP connnections or NIVNETNM and NIVLUNAME 
               for SNA connnections are created and kept.               
   Thanks to Sudie Wulfert-Schickedanz, Anheuser-Busch, USA.            
Change 17.307  Support for APAR OW41147 to recognize ORGEXPDT=0099999 as
VMACDCOL       a "valid" migration date when creating variables DCDEXPDT
Nov 12, 1999   and UMEXPDT.  This change (insert before ORGEXPDT=9999999
               in two places the line   ORGEXPDT=99999 OR     ) corrects
               SAS dates to be "MXG infinite" date in 2099 instead of to
               be missing in DCDEXPDT or UMEXPDT.  However, the variable
               ORGEXPDT is unchanged, so you can use your current MXG to
               examine your DCOLLECT datasets DCOLDSET and DCOLMIGS, and
               if you have any datasets with ORGEXPDT=99999, then you   
               MUST either install that APAR or follow its instructions 
               to prevent unexpected loss of any SMS dataset with its   
               ORGEXPDT=99000 on Jan 1, 2000.  What is critical is that 
               you read the APAR and see if it has impact on our site.  
               This MXG change is not required for year 2000 support in 
               MXG Software.

EXRAC540       540 in RACF Database Unload Utility IRRDBU00 file.       
Nov 11, 1999                                                            
   Thanks to Randy Shumate, LEXIS-NEXIS, USA.                           
Change 17.304  Counts could be negative in TYPE1032 Web Server dataset, 
TYPE103        because the accumulated counters are reset each time the 
TYPS103        server is "bounced".  Now, MXG interleaves the subtype 1 
VMAC103        (start) and 2 (interval) records to eliminate negative   
Nov 11, 1999   values.  Additional protection prevents negative values  
               if a subtype 2 is read before a subtype 1, or if data    
               records were lost, for the first subsequent record.      
               Member TYPE103 or TYPS103 both now invoke the DIFF103    
               member to sort both TYPE1031 and TYPE1032 datasets.      
               (So the //PDB ddname is required for TYPE or TYPS103).   
   Thanks to Joe Faska, Depository Trust, USA.                          
Change 17.303  IMF DB2 counts are lost in datasets CIMSTRAN and CIMSDB2 
VMACCIMS       in MVIMF 3.2, because BMC enabled IOWAITS by default,    
Nov 11, 1999   which puts some SQLCALLS in a new, undocumented DBORG=00x
Nov 19, 1999   DBD segment, instead of the documented DBORG='80'X DBD.  
Sep 15, 2000   IOWAITS is the MVIMF Event Collector DBIO initialization 
               parameter, and the new 00x segment accounts for sync     
               point write activity and is also flagged by the          
               PLANNAME='ALLDBS'.  MXG previously only knew about the   
               80x DBD, so the new 00x segments were decoded incorrectly
               and output to the CIMSDBDS instead of CIMSDB2.  And while
               MVIMF documentation said there would be only one '80'x   
               segment, logic was added to sum SQLCALLS for these       
               multiple segments into CIMSTRAN.  The drop in SQLCALLS   
               coincided with installing IMF 3.2.61.                    
               This change was not correct. See Change 18.225.          
   Thanks to Winfried Waldeyer, BHF Bank, GERMANY.                      
Change 17.302  Format $MG074PT expected 'F1'X or 'F3'X, but actual data 
FORMATS        values are '01'X or '03'X, so the format now supports    
Nov 11, 1999   both formats, just in case.                              
   Thanks to Alan M. Sherkow, I/S Management Strategies, Ltd., USA.     
======Changes thru 17.301 were in MXG 17.08 dated Nov 10, 1999======    
Change 17.301  Variable DURATM was not created in PDB.CICS built with   
ASUMCICX       member ASUMCICX.  Insert  DURATM=INTERVAL,  before the   
Nov 10, 1999   INTERVAL=HOUR, macro argument.                           
   Thanks to Alan Deepe, Perot Systems Europe, ENGLAND.                 
Change 17.300  If DB2 stays up long enough, and does enough SELECTs, the
ANALDB2R       four-byte accumulated counter in the type 100 SMF records
VMACDB2        can wrap, causing MXG to create a negative value when it 
Nov 10, 1999   DIF()'d the adjacent observations.  Now, each DIF() is   
               followed by a test for four-byte wrapping of the form:   
                IF . LT Qxxxxxxx LT 0 THEN Qxxxxxxx=Qxxxxxxx+4294967296;
               in member VMACDB2 (the "DIFFDB2" logic was relocated into
               the _SDB2xxx sort macros in MXG 16.04 redesign).  Also,  
               several fields in MXG's ANALDB2R reports were not wide   
               enough for large values, causing SAS to print exponential
               notation (valid, but confusing to neophytes), so they are
               now expanded along with other minor report revisions.    
   Thanks to Victor Chacon, Bell Atlantic Mobile, USA.                  
Change 17.299  MXG Variable CECSER is created by substringing the last  
VMAC7072       four nybbles of the three byte CPUSER to get the hardware
Nov  9, 1999   serial number of the "CEC" or "CPC", (i.e., the box), but
Nov 10, 1999   CPU segments have been found with 'E03333'X instead of a 
               valid CPU Serial Number.  These segments are all flagged 
               for an engine "not online at the end of the interval", or
               "came online during the interval", and the CPUSER is not 
               valid in those instances.  So now, MXG sets CECSER only  
                 IF CECSER GT '000000'X AND CAI EQ '......01'B THEN ... 
               so that only CPUs that were online at the end of the     
               interval and had not come online during the interval     
               will be used to set the CECSER.  Note, however, that     
               CPUSERnn (CPUSER stored into a serial number for each    
               CPU) will still contain whatever CPUSER value was in     
               its CPU segment if CAI had any bits turned on.           
   Thanks to Linda S. Berkley, Amdahl, USA.                             
Change 17.298  Batch Pipes datasets TYPE9112, TYPE9113, and TYPE9115 now
FORMATS        contain the Input and Output counts summed from all of   
VMAC91         the IEC and OEC connection segments for the End, Close,  
Nov  9, 1999   or Delete events, and the Highest Error Code from those  
Nov 27, 1999   connection segments.  Format $MG091EC was also updated.  
               Nov 27: additional formats added to $MG091EC.            
   Thanks to Michael Oujesky, MBNA Hallmark Information Services, USA.

Change 17.296  The de-accumulation logic in DIFFTPX caused NOT FOUND as 
DIFFTPX        was not updated; now it has only  _STPXINT invocation, as
Nov  8, 1999   deaccum is now done in the data set sort macro.          
   Thanks to Mike Shapland, PKS Information Services, Inc.              
Change 17.295  The creation of ZDATE in this VMAC member was replaced by
VMACCTLT       %%INCLUDE SOURCLIB(IMACZDAT); to be consistent with the  
Nov  8, 1999   rest of MXG VMACs.   The ommission was an oversight.

Change 17.294  MXG 17.06 added macro _CICXC13 to support excluded fields
IMACEXCL       for CICS/TS 1.3, but the "END;  /* END CICS TS 1.3 ..."  
Nov  8, 1999   line number 547, must be deleted to use the 1.3 Excludes.

Change 17.293  TYPEIMSA did not include member IMACKEEP; now it does.   
TYPEIMSA       This should have been included in Change 17.228 but was  
Nov  8, 1999   overlooked.

Change 17.292  Variable SMF6DDNM contains hex zeros for DDNAME in some  
IMAC6ESS       type 6 SMF records (perhaps spin data sets?), but the ESS
VMAC6          segment appears to have the DDNAME in the SWBTU text, so 
Nov  5, 1999   this change inputs new variable SMF6TUDD from ESS segment
               and stores SMF6TUDD into SMF6DDNM if SMF6DDNM is blank or
               nulls.  I'm still seeking the DSECTS for the SWBTU, and  
               the ESS segment itself is incorrectly documented in the  
               SMF manual and the DSECT, to make sure this is permanent.

Change 17.291 -Variable PERFINDX in dataset TYPE72GO was non-zero when  
EXTY72DL       it should have been missing for Service Classes with a   
EXTY72GO       Percentage goal.  MXG calculated PERFINDX even when there
VMAC7072       were no transactions completed in the interval.  Now, the
Nov  5, 1999   statement ELSE IF R723CRGF='P' THEN DO; was changed to   
               read ELSE IF R723CRGF='P' AND TRANS GT 0 THEN DO; so that
               PERFINDX will be missing when TRANS=0.  Additionally,    
               PERFINDX was not reinitialized for each Period, and thus 
               it could have been carried forward as non-zero when it   
               should have been missing.  However, PERFINDX will always 
               be missing in Reporting Class (RPRTCLAS='Y') observations
               and in observations for Service Classes that have System 
               or Discretionary Goals (R723CRGF='S' or 'D').  PERFINDX  
               will also be missing if the percent of transactions that 
               meet the goal falls into the 14th (last) bucket, which   
               make it impossible to calculate the PERFINDX.  On RMF    
               reports, IBM prints four asterisk for the index; you     
               can recognize these cases in MXG because R732CRGF='P',   
               PERFINDX=., but TRANS or TRANSEXC will be non-zero.      
              -Observations were output in TYPE72GO for Service Classes 
               that had no resources nor transaction completions.  The  
               variable NOACTVTY was non-zero (indicating activity) when
               it should have been zero.  Logic in VMAC7072 was revised 
               so R723RESS (trans states sampled) is no longer included 
               in NOACTVTY, and VELOCITY and PERFINDX are initialized   
               for each period (they were propagated into subsequent    
               periods in the same record that had no activity), and the
               logic in EXTY72GO now tests only                         
                 IF NOACTVTY GT 0 THEN OUTPUT _WTY72GO;                 
              -Observations were also output in TYPE72DL where there    
               were no delay samples.  Now, EXTY72GO was revised so that
               observations are only output in TYPE72DL when R723RESS is
               non zero (i.e., there were transaction states sampled).

Change 17.290  MXG 17.07 IMS code still had negative RESPNSTM/SERVICETM 
ASMIMSLG       in 5704 (out of 130000) IMS transactions.  Data records  
ASMIMSL5       for this (yet another!) unique sequence of IMS log events
ASMIMSL6       plus lots of detailed digging thru mounds of data allowed
JCLIMSLG       Carl to enhance MXG for these new IMS idiosyncrasies:    
JCLIMSL5       1. TYPEIMSA corrected 5411 of the negative cases, which  
JCLIMSL6          included all of the negative RESPNSTM values.  Logic  
TYPEIMSA          added protects when ENDTIME is less than GUTIME.  This
Nov 10, 1999      left 293 transactions with negative SERVICTM.         
               2. ASMIMSLx assembly program revision protects cases when
                  IMS rerouting exits change destinations causing the   
                  IMS communications manager to do the get unique of a  
                  message that was originally destined to an SMB.  The  
                  change sets MTYPE='PTOT' for messages GU'd by comm.   
                  So you must re-assemble the ASMIMSLG/L5/L6 program for
                  your version of IMS to correct this problem, which    
                  corrected 291 cases of negative SERVICETM.            
               3. TYPEIMSA corrected the remaining two cases of negative
                  SERVICETM was to change the reset of STRTTIME=GUTIME  
                  for all transactions, to use that reset only for MTYPE
                  starts with T, and otherwise reset STRTTIME=ENQTIME   
                  for cases such as MTYPE='PTOT' in which the GU happens
                  ascynchronous to the end of the transaction.          
               4. The SORT statement in STEP02 of the JCL examples needs
                  to be changed.  The "35,8" entry, for the message     
                  arrival time, is changed to "43,8" so that the enq    
                  timestamp is used to force the records in absolute    
                  order (because the arrival timestamp can be zero, as  
                  for 03 output record messages for PTOT transactions). 
               In summary, you need to reassemble ASMIMSLx, use the new 
               TYPEIMSA, and change the SORT parameter in your JCL.     
               The cause of the 291 negatives is documented in IBM APAR 
               PQ01976; they result when the site uses the IMS Input    
               Message Routing Exit, DFSNPRT0, to reroute a message that
               was originally destined to an SMB instead to a CNT.  In  
               this case, a multisegment IMS log 03 record has MSGDFLG2 
               indicating a program-to-program message switch ('81'X),  
               but the Exit changed the destination from another SMB to 
               the CNT of an IBM 3614 cash dispensing ATM terminal, so  
               the message is picked up by the IMS communications       
               manager instead of by DLI, so the get unique from the    
               message queue for that message is represented by a type  
               31 record that has a QLGUFLGS ('A0'X), indicating it's   
               pretty much just a normal output message, but the        
               resultant mismatch in log coding created a transaction   
               record with negative value for SERVICTM variables in     
               IMSTRAN.  The PTF associated with IBM APAR PQ01976 does  
               NOT correct the log records; it only prevented IBM's     
               merge utility DFSLTMG0 from ABENDing (as it did when it  
               first saw this sequence of IMS log records!).

Change 17.289  Labels for several sets of TYPE71 variables AV/MN/MX     
VMAC71         suffixed, now contain "*USED", to clarify which are the  
Nov  3, 1999   usage measures and which are capacity measures.          
   Thanks to Forrest Nielson, State of Utah, USA.                       
Change 17.288  Variable TOTSHARE was removed from the DROP statement so 
ASUM70PR       it will be kept, as it may be useful to recalculate the  
Nov  3, 1999   original system weights.                                 
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.                                     
Change 17.287  Revised Support for SMF Type 90, TYPE90A/VMAC90A should  
EXTY9001       be used instead of the old TYPE90/VMAC90 members, which  
EXTY9003       will no longer be updated.  That old architecture kept   
EXTY9004       all variables from subtypes 1-26 in the TYPE90 dataset,  
EXTY9005       which not only wastes DASD space, but always requires a  
EXTY9006       subset operation to select the observations you want.    
EXTY9008       The TYPE90 code was the first written when subtypes were 
EXTY9010       added to SMF records, and when there were only a few and 
EXTY9011       they were similar in content, it made sense to create one
EXTY9012       TYPE90 dataset, and when new subtypes were added it was  
EXTY9014       easier to add variables to an existing data set than to  
EXTY9016       create a new data set, but now with 31 often-dissimilar  
EXTY9017       subtypes, this "redesign with hindsight" is the righteous
EXTY9018       way it should have been done in the first place, as it   
EXTY9019       creates 26 separate datasets, TYPE9001-TYPE9031, one for 
EXTY90..       each of the operator commmand events, with only variables
EXTY90..       from that event kept in that TYPE90nn dataset.  There was
EXTY9030       no complaint with the old design, since everything that  
EXTY9031       was supported was in the old TYPE90 dataset, but the need
IMAC90A        to support the new subtypes (27 and above, plus some that
TYPE90A        per previously missed) motivated the redesing.  Now all  
TYPS90A        subtypes are decoded, except for data segments of subtype
VMAC90A        24 and 31 (no request, no test data, complicated, shelve 
Nov  3, 1999   until someone want's to us them).                        
   Thanks to Philip Foster, Desjardins, CANADA.                         
Change 17.286  MXG Support for FICON Channels was wrong.  Variables     
VMAC73         PCHANBY/PNCHANBY were incorrectly calculated for FICON,  
Nov  2, 1999   and Percent Bus Busy, PBUSBY was not even created, and   
               variables SMF73PRU/PWU/TRU/TWU are recalculated to now   
               contain read/write lpar/total rates in bytes per second, 
               formatted with MGBYTRT to print KB/Sec, MB/Sec, etc, to  
               match IBM RMF reports, now that I have test data and RMF 
               reports for validation!                                  
   Thanks to Joseph Rannazzisi, Salomon Smith Barney, USA.              
Change 17.285  New NPM 2.4 field LSCDIPNM (IP Name) was input for all   
VMAC28         records but is valid only if resource type is 'IP', so   
Nov  1, 1999   that field will now be blank if not an 'IP' record.      
               Variable LSCDUSER is blank if LENCOF is 112, which is the
               documented length for VM Session Configuration (SMF28SCD)
               records, and other LSCDxxxx fields are only input if the 
               record is for Session Managers.                          
   Thanks to Robert A. Brown, Arthur Andersen, USA.                     
Change 17.284  Support for TRMS Version 51A08 changes (COMPATIBLE) to   
EXTRMS05       their user SMF record.  New fields were added to subtype 
VMACTRMS       3 and 4 datasets TMRS03 and TMRS04, and new subtype 5    
VMXGINIT       record creates new dataset TMRS05, 'Browse Tracking'.    
Oct 28, 1999   The S0nACCT character variables are now formatted as     
               $HEX64, because the contain non-printable characters.    
               The length of new fields S05KEY is not defined in the    
               dsect, but was found to be 14 bytes in this site's data  
               record.  It's length, T00KLEN is set somewhere else and  
               could be different; we're investigating.

Change 17.282  Protection for bad type 80 record was not robust if MXG  
VMAC80A        got out of alignment and thought it had a bad record; it 
Oct 27, 1999   could STOPOVER abend instead of gracefully deleting that 
               bad record, but protection logic from WHEN (00) was also 
               added in OTHERWISE DO; logic to eliminate the abend.     
   Thanks to Jens Schlatter, Independent Consultant, GERMANY.           
Change 17.281  Support for DFSMS/MVS V1R5 is already in place, as there 
VMACDCOL       were no changes in the DCOLLECT records in 1.5.          
Oct 26, 1999                                                            
Change 17.280  Support for Landmark DB2 Monitor Version 3.2 (INCOMPAT). 
EXTMDD7        Many new variables were added to existing MXG datasets   
EXTMDD7P       TMDBDE2, and TMDBD6, and the new 'D7' record creates new 
VMACTMDB       TMDBD7, TMDBD7B, and TMDBD7P datasets.  This version has 
VMXGINIT       lots of new stuff, including pairs of duration/counts of 
Oct 26, 1999   many waiting-for-something's.  Since Landmark inserted   
               new fields instead of adding at the end, you must install
               the change to process Version 3.2 or higher data.  Using 
               an earlier MXG version for TMDB Version 3.2 records will 
               cause the job to fail with many errors!

Change 17.279  CICS Statistics "EOD" records do not contain a duration, 
UCICSCNT       even though the "EOD" records is just the Interval Record
VMAC110        since the last "INT" record. (The "EOD" is written at EOD
Oct 24, 1999   but DOES NOT contain the entire day's data!).  With no   
Oct 27, 1999   DURATM, MXG sets STARTIME=COLLTIME (SMFTIME), so while   
               all of the obs are really there in the MXG data set, it  
               looks like the 9pm interval was missed with STARTIME:    
                    STARTIME          COLLTIME     SMFSTRQT             
                  31OCT:15:00       31OCT:18:00      INT                
                  31OCT:18:00       31OCT:21:00      INT

                   1NOV:00:00        1NOV:03:00      INT                
               While STARTIME is wrongly equal to COLLTIME in the "EOD" 
               interval record in CICxxxxx Statistics datasets built by 
               the TYPE110/BUILDPDB programs, STARTIME is set correctly 
               in the PDB.CICINTRV dataset that is created from nineteen
               of the "raw" CICS Stat datasets by the member CICINTRV:  
                -It constructs true intervals from INT/EOD/USS/REQ/RRQ  
                 records, some of which are intervals and some of which 
                 are accumulated, and by sorting and merging, it creates
                 the correct STARTIME of each interval.                 
                -Fifteen CICS statistics datasets that are used in the  
                 creation of PDB.CICINTRV are created one-per-interval, 
                 so they are merged into PDB.CICINTRV with no loss of   
                 detail; thus there should be no need to use these "raw"
                 CICxxx datasets with wrong STARTIME in their EOD record
                 because they are redundant with PDB.CICINTRV:          
                   CICAUTO  CICDMG   CICDQG   CICDS    CICDTB   CICLDG  
                   CICM     CICSDG   CICST    CICTC    CICTDG   CICTM   
                   CICTSQ   CICVT    CICXMR                             
                -Four CICS statistics datasets used in the creation of  
                 PDB.CICINTRV have multiple observations per interval   
                   CICDQR  CICFCR  CICTCR  CICTSR                       
                 (i.e., CICFCR has an observation for each File).  Some 
                 useful counters are summed per interval and merged in  
                 PDB.CICINTRV, but detail observations are likely needed
                 to be kept in your PDB, and you will have to live with 
                 the incorrect STARTIME in the EOD obs.                 
               So why not fix IBM's ommission (which was designed this  
               way and not likely to change)?  Because the only way to  
               correct it would be to add a PROC SORT and DATA step for 
               each stat dataset to re-construct the correct STARTIME,  
               and that seems an unnecessary expense at this time.      
               However, the architecture of each _Sdddddd macro would   
               make this possible, so if this remains a problem for you,
               let's discuss this as a future enhancement.              
               The initial "Missing 9pm Interval" report was thought to 
               be a real data loss, but that possibility was eliminated 
               when there were no messages that CICS had suspended write
               to SMF.  But to re-document what might happen:           
               When CICS cannot send data to the SMF address space, you 
               get "DFHMN0101 CICS COPYNAME SMF RC '0028'X"    or       
                   "DFHST0103 CICS COPYNAME SMF RC '0028'X"    messages 
               on both SYSLOG and the JOBLOG of that CICS region.  The  
               MN message says CICSTRAN (subtype 1) records were lost,  
               the ST message is for Statistics (subtype 2) records.    
               This happens briefly when SMF Buffers are being expanded 
               or when SMF SWITCH occurs (because both are serialized   
               functions under the single SMF TCB).  By scheduling the  
               SMF dump/SWITCH away from the interval pop, its impact   
               may be eliminated.  By increasing the size of your SMF   
               buffers with APAR OW12836 (increases minimum from 1MB    
               to 8MB, which might eliminate the need for expansion;    
               increases the maximum from 32MB to 128MB; and increases  
               each increment from 1MB to 8MB so there are fewer buffer 
               expansions and fewer exposures to data loss) you may be  
               lucky and avoid the problem, until IBM responds to the   
               SHARE requirement to fix this design!                    
               The only code change was an enhancement to the UCICSCNT  
               program that counts CICS records by APPLID and type; a   
               new reports details Statistics counts by STID and record 
               so I could tell if stat data really was lost!

Change 17.278  Support for APAR OW40570/OW41407 for SMF 42 Subtype 4    
VMAC42         adds S42CVLUX to contain the 4-digit UCB address in MXG  
Oct 22, 1999   dataset TYPE42CV.  The existing 3-digit S42CVLUA variable
               contains 'UCB' for any 4-digit UCB address!              
Change 17.277  Documentation only, no code was changed.  TYPE94 data    
VMAC94         fields VMV/VPS/VPM/VPR/VMP/VBW/VBR/VTW/VTR will be zero, 
Oct 22, 1999   and fields VBA/VEC/VLA/VNM/VCA/VCZ will stop accumulate, 
               if the screen on the PC that is attached to the VTS/ATL  
               and that is collecting those physical back end activity  
               counters is minimized!  Discussions with IBM in progress.
Change 17.276  New Format $MGTCPFM decodes the FTPDATFM data format     
FORMATS        variable (ASCII/EBCDIC/IMAGE/DOUBLE-BYTE/UCS-2) values.  
VMACTCP        Variable FTPDSNA2 is no longer kept in TYPETCPC dataset  
Oct 22, 1999   (FTP Client), as that field exists only in TYPETCPF      
               (FTP Server), and was filled with hex trash.             
   Thanks to Jason Cooley, CITICORP, USA.                               
Change 17.275  Reading type 39 SMF records directly from VSAM SMF file  
VMAC39         failed because the calculation of offset for two optional
Oct 21, 1999   triplets did not include (+OFFSMF).                      
   Thanks to Bruce Hudson, Payless Cashways, USA.                       
Change 17.274  The symbolic &TAILOR and its //TAILOR DD were removed    
JCLTEST6       from the MXGSAS example JCL procedure, because in a few  
MXGSAS         sites either SAS 180 errors or USER ABEND 2415 occurred  
Oct 20, 1999   due to (strange?) problems, and so I've decided that the 
               optional tailoring library is more pain than value, as   
               no one really used it anyhow!                            
   Thanks to Richard Phelps, Arizona State University, USA.             
Change 17.273  The estimated length of tape, DSNBFEET and TAPEFEET, was 
TYPETMS5       non-zero when BLKSIZE=0 because the two calculations in  
Oct 20, 1999   TYPETMS5 did not match the logic in VMACTMS5, so tests   
               for BLKCNT GT 0 and BLKSIZE GT 0 AND RECFM conditions    
               in VMACTMS5 were added to calculations in TYPETMS5.

   Thanks to Patsy Hildreth, CMX Group, USA.                            
Change 17.272  Calculation of variable OVRSPPC6 incorrectly used the    
VMACNSPY       3270 buckets instead of the LU6.2 buckets.  It should be:
Oct 20, 1999     OVRSPPC6=100-T1RSPPC6-T2RSPPC6-T3RSPPC6-T4RSPP6;       
   Thanks to Julian Smailes, Experian Limited (UK), ENGLAND.            
Change 17.271  This utility was developed to show you how your IMACWORK 
UTILRMFI       definitions cluster PERFGRP or SRVCLASS into the workload
Oct 18, 1999   variables in RMFINTRV dataset.  It shows where the type72
               CPU times came from, using your IMACWORK, and it also    
               reads type 30s to show SRVCLASS/RPTCLASS/JOB CPU times.  
               The utility is needed when your RMFINTRV execution prints
               error messages that your workload definition CPU time    
               does not match the true CPU time in SRVCLASS/PERFGRPS.   
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.                                     
Change 17.270  Support for APAR PQ28258 for the SMF type 103 record that
VMAC103        was created by Internet Connection Secure Server (R3,R2) 
Oct 18, 1999   and then by Lotus Domino Go Webserver for OS/390 (R4-R6),
May 31, 2000   now named WebSphere Application Server OS/390 (R7-R8),   
               (and now May, 2000 sub-titled HTTP Server Version 5.2),  
               adds many new statistics, including five sets of avg/min 
               max response times for DNS, Plugins, CGI, SSL, & Proxy,  
               to subtype=2 record in dataset TYPE1032.                 
Change 17.269  Long ago, when I observed that the total device pending  
VMAC74         time (PCTDVPND) was more than the sum of its two parts,  
Oct 18, 1999   Pend for Device (PCTPNDEV) plus Pend for CU (PCTPNCUB),  
Dec 16, 1999   I stored the difference as the Pend for Chan (PCTPNCHA). 
               But when IBM added Pend for Director Port (PCTPNDIR), I  
               did not treat that as a component of PCTPNCHA, and now I 
               measure there still is a difference between the Total and
               its components, so I now:                                
                - Store Pend Dir Port into PCTPNCHA/DLYCHATM variables  
                  and changed their labels to be Chan Dir Port delay    
                - Calculate the Other Pending PCTPNOTH/DLYOTHTM as      
                  Other Pend =  Total   - (Device + CU + Dir Port)      
               Independent of this change, type 74 data records with    
               Total Pend Time (SMF70PND) of 28 seconds but Pending for 
               Device component (SMF70DVB) was 37 seconds are written   
               occasionally for devices simulated in an EMC box.  The   
               error causes PCTPNOTH to be negative (and, before this   
               change, PCTPNCHA was also negative because it used to    
               be the same as PCTPNOTH).  We have also seen similar, but
               much smaller differences, for tape devices.              
   Thanks to Robert Girard, EMC, USA.                                   
Change 17.268  Variables UBCOMPR UBUSRSIZ UBCMPSIZ were INPUT but were  
VMACDCOL       not in the KEEP= list for dataset DCOLBKUP. Now they are.
Oct 18, 1999                                                            
   Thanks to Alastair Gray, Philip Morris EDC, SWITZERLAND.             
Change 17.267  The VTS report program was corrected; while its example  
ANAL94         in comments worked fine, invoking %ANAL94(PDB=SMF); to   
Oct 13, 1999   read SMF to produce reports did not produce!  Parameter  
               REPORT=HOURLY is now the default, so that a report will  
               now always be produced, plus other cleanup.              
Change 17.266  The "GT" was changed to "GE" so all lines now read       
VMACHARB        IF HH GE 0 AND MM GE 0 AND SS GE 0 THEN ....            
Oct 11, 1999   because the "GT" caused some missing timestamps.         
               Nine flags, AXR0nFL1, are now formatted $HEX2.           
   Thanks to Patsy Hildreth, CMX Group, USA.                            
Change 17.265  The VMXGSUM error in Change 17.264 is corrected, by      
VMXGSUM        relocating the ALLVARS initialization higher up in the   
Oct 11, 1999   logic; it was bypassed when INCODE= was not used, and    
               was blank when it should have had a list of variables.   
                  When &ALLVARS was blank, VMXGSUM generated code was   
                    PROC MEANS; VAR ; OUTPUT OUT=X SUM(A B C);          
                  (i.e., a VARIABLES statement with no variables).      
                  This PROC MEANS failed "NO ANALYSIS VARIABLES" with   
                  SAS V6, but under SAS Version 8, it ran just fine!    
                  Exactly why is under investigation; but I think it is 
                  enhancements SAS made under SAS V8:  in this specific 
                  PROC MEANS invocation, a VAR statement is not needed  
                  because the SUM(A,B,C) syntax provides the names, so  
                  SAS V8 ignored the unneeded VAR statement?            
               In any event, VMXGSUM now always populates ALLVAR with   
               the list of variables so it won't be blank.              
======Changes thru 17.264 were in MXG 17.07 dated Oct  8, 1999======    
Change 17.264  The VMXGSUM of Change 17.255 was never put in MXG 17.07, 
VMXGSUM        because it was not correct.  MXG QA under SAS V8 had no  
XMXGSUM        errors, so 17.07 was built, but final QA with SAS V6     
Oct  8, 1999   found errors in VMXGSUM that were not caught by V8, so I 
               removed VMXGSUM for the MXG 17.07.  Note that 17.255 was 
               reinstated by Change 17.265 in MXG 17.08.                
Change 17.263  Support for Domino Server SMF type 108 record creates    
EXTY1081       three new datasets from subtype 1 interval records:      
EXTY108P         Dataset   Description

TYPS108        Additional development work is ongoing by IBM so you can 
VMAC108        anticipate additional measurements for Domino soon.      
Oct  8, 1999   Domino Release R5.0 & R5.01 are supported by this change.
               The type 108 record originated with Lotus Notes Domino   
               Server, and was primarily a mail server for Lotus Notes, 
               but now the Lotus Domino Server provides services for    
               Notes, and contains its own HTTP server & JAVA function. 
               Note that the Websphere Application Server HTTP Server   
               is the product that creates the SMF 103 record.

Change 17.262  Revisions in DAILYDSN to use TYPSDCOL instead of TYPEDCOL
DAILYDSN       (so the PROC SORT and NODUP logic would be taken from the
Oct  8, 1999   VMACDCOL instead of being coded in DAILYDSN) wrote the   
               output to the //PDB instead of the expected //DATASETS.  
               By inserting  %VMXGINIT(DEFAULT=DATASETS); before the    
               include of TYPSDCOL, the default PDB becomes DATASETS and
               DAILYDSN now works as it did previously.

======Changes thru 17.261 were in MXG 17.07 dated Oct  7, 1999======    
Change 17.261  Unexpected Expiration date of 2099366 (also invalid, as  
VMACDCOL       2099 is not a leap year) was found, and caused missing   
Oct  7, 1999   value for DCDEXPDT/UMEXPDT.  The logic was revised to add
               test  (YREXPDT=199 AND DAYEXPDT GE 365) OR  in two places
               so that the '31DEC2099' infinite MXG date is stored in

Change 17.256  This revision, used by UTILGETM, allows you to read an   
VMXGGETM       SMF file and report on the contents by type, subtype, and
Oct  4, 1999   system, using PROC TABULATE.  If you specify SMFOUT= a   
               null string, and specify FREQ=YES, the report is created.
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.                                     
Change 17.255  This revision adds new statistics (notably percentiles)  
VMXGSUM        in VMXGSUM output, and detects execution under SAS V7/V8 
Oct  6, 1999   so that the new INHERIT parameter in PROC MEANS can be   
               used, which may eliminate the need for the final datastep
               (previously required to reset variable lengths).         
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.                                     
Change 17.254  A number of new timestamp fields from DB2 and CICS were  
IMACNORM       added to the PDB.ASUMOW dataset.  In addition, new member
ASUMUOW        IMACNORM is added to permit you to normalize the CPU time
Oct  3, 1999   created in the PDB.ASUMUOW dataset, in case you have CICS
               Regions and/or DB2 Subsystems executing in machines of   
               different speeds.  IMACNORM is preliminary, and may be   
               changed in the future, but it has no impact unless you   
               change it, as IMACNORM now only contains commments.      
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.

               removed, as the second one, inside the test for length,  
               was the correct one.

Change 17.252  This analysis of all SAS dates in all SAS datasets that  
ANALDATE       was added by Change 17.168 now works; the debugging lines
Oct  3, 1999   302 and 303 are now removed, and line 10 now has an      
               ending */.

Change 17.251  If SAS options USER= or WORK= were specified, the output 
VMXGINIT       of an MXG %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(TYPExxxx); program always    
Oct  2, 1999   went to //WORK, but with this change, the WORK= or USER= 
               destination will be honored.                             
               Apr 5, 2000: The USER= or WORK= options must be specified
               on // EXEC SAS or on the SAS command; they are resolved  
               when VMXGINIT executes at MXG startup, and cannot be     
               changed later with an OPTIONS statement.                 
              -A new macro variable, SASCHRLN, is set to 32000 if SAS V7
               or V8 is executed AND if COMPRESS=YES is turned on, but  
               SASCHRLN=200 for V6 (and for V7, V8 with COMPRESS=NO).   
               This macro may be used to set the length of character    
               variables in some specific cases:                        
                 With the SAS character variable limit of 200 bytes, MXG
                 datasets with long text strings (SQL text in DB2 trace 
                 averages 2000 bytes per statement) are output into many
                 observations for each 200 bytes of text (and the fixed 
                 fields are many hundred repeated bytes!).  Instead, now
                 that variables can be 32000 bytes long, only one output
                 observation is needed, and by using compression, only  
                 the actual data has to be stored, so the unused length 
                 won't actually take up any space, and you can get the  
                 effect if variable length text storage in SAS!

Change 17.250  Member VMXGINIT creates macro variable MXGVERS, the MXG  
VMXGINIT       Version Number that is printed in MXG messages and kept  
Oct  4, 1999   in dataset TYPE70.  The MXGVERS value was kept in member 
               VMXGINIT, but its value is now read from member AAAAAAAA 
               used because it has always had the version and because   
               it is never modified by user tailoring), so that now I   
               can email you a change that includes an altered VMXGINIT 
               member (two new macro variables are defined there for a  
               new MXG dataset), but the MXG Version will be unchanged. 
               Only when you install the full new MXG Version will the  
               new number be seen.  This had not caused any error nor   
               had anyone noticed, but this seems more righteous.       
Change 17.249  New FORMAT MGKILO is created to print five-position      
FORMATS        values with K/M/G/T/P suffix for Kilo/Mega/Giga factors  
Oct  2, 1999   (not 1024 byte-factors, but 1000 kilo-factors) for pretty
               printing of data with wide range of values compactly.  It
               is not used in MXG Software, and will not replace MGBYTES
               format for true "mega-bytes" values, but if your manager 
               demands that you use "million-byte" values to match the  
               lies from your DASD vendor, you can use MGKILO in your   
               reports to satisfy him/her, but I suggest you create a   
               second variable and format it MGKILO and print both the  
               MGBYTES and MGKILO values side-by-side, and use a LABEL  
               to clearly identify which is which!

VMAC115        SMF records adds new variables QISTMGET/QISTMPUT to the  
Oct  2, 1999   MQMMSGDM MQ Message Data Manager dataset.  Previously    
               reserved fields were used for the new data.

Change 17.247  A new exit member, EX80ASEG, for type 80 SMF records     
EX80ASEG       (RACF or TOP SECRET) is added so that installation-unique
VMAC80A        RACFTYPE segments can be decoded external to the VMAC80A.
Oct  2, 1999   Old-style macro _E80ASEG is defined so MACKEEP= logic can
               be used as an alternative to EDITing EX80ASEG.

Change 17.246  The subtype 3 TELEVIEW SMF record has four extra bytes   
VMACTELE       inserted before the startup/shutdown times in the 4.3B   
Oct  2, 1999   release that is now supported.  An additional internal   
               TeleView error in the USERID field is corrected by their 
               fix T19C017.

Change 17.245  MXG 17.06 only.  Change 17.213 typo caused VTS variables 
VMAC94         to have zero values, and ERROR.VMAC94.AUDITLEN INVALID   
Oct  1, 1999   messages printed.  The line added by that change:

               (and the SMF94VLN= in the following PUT statement should 
               also have been SMF94XLN=).                               
   Thanks to Robert Carballo, WORLDSPAN, L.P. USA.                      
Change 17.244  DCOLLECT variables DCACISZ and DCACACIC were missing,    
VMACDCOL       because the test before the INPUT of DCAHURBC should have
Oct  1, 1999   been GE 16 instead of GE 32, and the +16 after the INPUT 
               of DCAHARBC should have been deleted.

Change 17.243  The _BTY91xx By List macros and _STY91xx Sort macros are 
ANAL91         populated and will eliminate duplicate Batch Pipes SMF   
FORMATS        records.  The label for SMF91OW as changed from EMPTY to 
VMAC91         FULL, format $MG091XW was updated, and the new ANAL91    
Oct  3, 1999   was intended to summarize TYPE91IC/TYPE91OC data to look 
               for lost data as described in APAR PQ25641.  However, as 
               SMF91IEC/SMF91OEC are almost always zero (7 nonzero in   
               33,609 TYPE91IC obs, 3 nonzero in 23,570 TYPE91OC obs),  
               ANAL91 is not much use (yet) in detecting that data loss.
               Also, type 91 is incomplete.  These pipe criteria values 
               ERC,CLOSESYNC,TERMSYNC) are not reported in type 91s, nor
               are replacement values for WAITALLOC,WAITOPEN,IDLE,WAIT, 
               WAITEOF,WAITCLOSE or WAITTERM reported when one of those 
               values is overriden for a specific pipe connection.  And 
               the STEPNAME in TYPE91IC/TYPE91OC still does not match   
               the SMF 30 record's STEPNAME for same job/step number!   
               A new APAR PW31018 will correct some documentation for   
               type 91 records, but a new ETR is still open on counts.

Change 17.242  If you ran ASUMTALO against a months input, and you had  
ASUMTALO       one system whose last TYPETALO timestamp was on Aug 5th, 
Oct  1, 1999   (either that system went away, or the MXGTMNT monitor    
               program that writes the SMF records was STOPped, or      
               MXGTMNT was no longer automatically started at IPL, or   
               MXGTMNT had shut itself down with an MXGTMNT message on  
               SYSLOG, etc.) then PDB.ASUMTALO output had data only thru
               Aug 5, because the MXG SPIN logic in ASUMTALO put all of 
               the TALO records for Aug 6-31 into the spin library!     
                 The SPIN logic in ASUMTALO uses the TMNTTYPE=5 Hourly  
                 Interval records (created just for this logic so that  
                 active allocations can be included) in TYPETALO input  
                 to get the timestamp of the last-complete-interval on  
                 each SYSTEM, and uses the minimum last-interval time   
                 across all SYSTEMs as the spin criteria: TYPETALO obs  
                 with timestamps greater than that criteria (both the   
                 TMNTTYPE=5 hourly and the TMNTTYPE=4 end-of-allocation 
                 event) go to SPIN.SPINTALO for tomorrow's ASUMTALO,    
                 because only records up thru the last complete interval
                 from ALL systems can be used to count tape allocations 
                 when tape drives can be shared across systems.         
                 This SPIN logic works fine when you run ASUMTALO daily,
                 (ASUMTALO is invoked by BUILDPDB), although if the last
                 TYPETALO timestamp for one system is at 9:00am THU, the
                 PDB.ASUMTALO built early Friday will contain data only 
                 up to 9:00am THU, but then the next day's PDB.ASUMTALO 
                 will have picked up the spun records, so PDB.ASUMTALO  
                 built early Saturday will contain 9:00am THU thru FRI  
                 end of day, so no data is really lost, but at most is  
                 delayed one day.                                       
              But to support processing of multiple day's TYPETALO data,
              the ASUMTALO spin logic now calculates the delta between  
              the minimums of each system last-complete-interval, and if
              there is more than 24 hours difference between systems,   
              that execution of ASUMTALO will suspend the SPIN logic and
              will output all TYPETALO events in the input data.        
              If you have missing data in PDB.ASUMTALO datasets that    
              were created from multiple day's TYPETALO, you can delete 
              the subtype 5 interval records and recreate ASUMTALO with:
                //PDB DD DSN=PDB.TO.BE.REPAIRED,DISP=OLD                
                 DATA PDB.TYPETALO;                                     
                 SET  PDB.TYPETALO;                                     
                 IF TYPETMNT=5 THEN DELETE;                             
                 %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(ASUMTALO);                           
              Deleting the subtype 5 interval records eliminates SPIN   
              logic in ASUMTALO, so all dates will be output into the   
              replacement PDB.  The tail-end intervals will be missing  
              in-flight tape allocations, but the real data will be     
              correct.  Note that if your PDB.ASUMTALO dataset is on    
              tape, you cannot directly replace it, and would have to:  
               //REALPDB DD DSN=REAL.PDB.ON.TAPE,DISP=OLD               
               //PDB      DD DSN=&&TEMPPDB,DISP=(,DELETE),UNIT=SYSDA,   
               //            SPACE=(CYL,(100,100))

                IF TYPETMNT=5 THEN DELETE;

Change 17.241  The Tandem Utility to read "Unstructured" records was    
UTANDSTR       re-commented and set up to convert the five Measure files
VMACTAND       that MXG supports, and the table of LRECLs for both the  
Sep 30, 1999   "Normal" and "Unstructured" tandem records in VMACTAND   
               was updated.                                             
Change 17.240  The addition of dataset TYPE30TD by Change 17.111 was not

Change 17.238  RMFINTRV didn't support non-contiguous shift definitions,
RMFINTRV       like a three hour peak-shift that includes 10:00-11:59   
Sep 28, 1999   and 14:00-14:59, because some TYPE7xD datasets were not  
               resorted after the value of STARTIME was changed by the  
               DURSET macro in member IMACRMFI.  Now, all of the TYPE7xD
               data sets are sorted BY SYSPLEX SYSTEM STARTIME, so as   
               long as your shift definition for this peak shift resets 
               STARTIME to 10:00 as the start of this three hour shift, 
               all three hours will be summarized as expected.

               and kept in NSPYNSPI, for NSPNRECI='04'x (X.25 lines).   
               Variable NSPX25R is no longer kept in NSPYLINE dataset,  
               because NSPYLINE contains no X.25 resources and the      
               existence of that variable was misleading.

Change 17.235  Support for OS/400 Release 4.4.0 (INCOMPATIBLE due to the
VMACQAPM       changes in LRECL of the new records), but if you change  
Sep 27, 1999   the LRECLs in your JCL, then MXG 16.02-17.06 "tolerate"  
               the new records: MXG does not fail, reads all of the

Change 17.234  Mobius View Direct 6.1.2 (a/k/a INFOPAC) added new field 
VMACIPAC       for the Caller Type, new variable IPCALLER in dataset    
Sep 26, 1999   IPAC03, compatibly.                                      
   Thanks to Steve Clark, California Federal Bank, USA.                 
Change 17.233  TRND70 was enhanced to contain OMVSAVG, OMVSMIN and      
TRND70         OMVSMAX to track number of Open Edition users.           
Sep 26, 1999                                                            
   Thanks to Diane Eppestine, Southwestern Bell, USA.                   
Change 17.232  The new PDB.ASUMCEC dataset was created BY SYSPLEX CECSER
ASUM70PR       but SYSPLEX should not have been used in the summary (a  
Sep 26, 1999   CEC can have LPARs in different SYSPLEXes) and has been  
               removed.  Also, the "PDB" was hardcoded, but it should   
               have been the "&PDBMXG" macro reference (which defaults  
               to "PDB" but permits global destination changes by ITSV).
   Thanks to Randy Shumate, LEXIS-NEXIS, USA.                           
   Thanks to Toby Olberding, Hudson Williams, USA.                      
Change 17.231  The date variables XPMLKDT and XPMXPDT were formatted as 
VMACSFTA       DATE9, but they contained Julian dates and had not been  
Sep 26, 1999   converted to SAS dates.  These lines were inserted after 
               their input so they will now contain valid SAS dates:    
               The actual code change was more extensive, as it includes
               the Y2K JULDATE algorithm from member YEAR2000.          
   Thanks to Ove Dall-Hansen, CODAN Insurance A/S, DENMARK.             
Change 17.230  MXG constructed variables STC07FPS and STC07TPS did not  
VMACSTC        match the format printed on the STK Silo LSM Info report 
Sep 26, 1999   but once STK Technical Support told me how they drop the 
Oct  5, 1999   first nybble and print three character positions with the
               last nybble of ACS in one hex and both nybbles of LSM in 
               two hex positions, both fields now match the STK utility 
               report format from the STK user SMF record.              
               However, truncated subtype 1, 4, and 7 records that cause
               found and are under now protected in VMACSTC.            
                  One circumvention for these short records (prior to   
                  this change) that eliminates the ABEND and lets MXG   
                  read thru all of the SMF data is to use MACRO STOPOVER
                  MISSOVER %   after //SYSIN to change MXG's default of 
                  STOPOVER to MISSOVER.                                 
                  However, MISSOVER will still OUTPUT each of the bad   
                  records, so the MXG datasets will contain unexpected  
                  missing values, possibly causing your report programs 
                  to die with divide by zero exceptions!                
                  A safer workaround was to delete the short records    
                  in the IMACFILE exit member, using:                   
                  IF ID=222 AND SUBTYPE=7 AND LENGTH LT 140 THEN DELETE;
                  IF ID=222 AND SUBTYPE=4 AND LENGTH LT 552 THEN DELETE;
                  IF ID=222 AND SUBTYPE=1 AND LENGTH LT 198 THEN DELETE;

Change 17.229  The EXCLUDE logic for Omegamon for archaic CICS Version 2
IMACEXCL       in macro _CICXCOM did not test for SMFPSRVR, so if you   
Sep 26, 1999   had both _CICXCOM and _CICXCU4 enabled, the _CICXCOM code
               was executed for the 4.1 region, causing INVALID RECORD  
               DELETED error message and STOPOVER abend.  Inserting     
                 IF SMFPSRVR LE 3 THEN DO;   ...   END;                 
               inside the MACRO _CICXCOM definition in IMACEXCL allows  
               the old and new version's excludes to coexist.           
   Thanks to Charles McAfee, Cover-all, CANADA.                         
Change 17.228  MXG Change 17.172 enhancements to MXG IMS log processing 
ASMIMSLG       are now implemented as the standard MXG support members. 
ASMIMSL5       (Those changes were added in new "X" members for testing 
ASMIMSL6       and with no reported errors, they have now become the MXG
EXIMSBMP       support for IMS log processing.)  In addition, the exit  
EXIMSTRN       members for the IMSTRAN, IMSBMPS, and IMSFASTP datasets  
JCLIMSLG       are now used (i.e., the _EIMSxxx macro did not call the  
JCLIMSL5       %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(EXIMSxxx); ) so that the MXG exit      
JCLIMSL6       facility can be exploited by ITSV.                       
TYPEIMSB       I strongly recommend that you install the new IMS support
VMACIMSA       and use it to reassemble the ASMIMSLx member to re-create
Sep 25, 1999   the MXGIMSLn program, which is then used in the JCLIMSLx 
               JCL example.  Using these new members will correct the   
               SubQ 6 times as well as provide the many enhancements    
               to IMS log processing described in member ADOCIMXA.      
Change 17.227  The SAP IMS log record 'AE'x was NOT Y2K Ready until SAP 
VMACIMSA       Release 5.0i, which (INCOMPATIBLY) changed the date from 
VMACIMS        0DDMMYYF to YYYYMMDD format.  This change supports the   
YEAR2000       new format, adds Y2K protection for their old YY format, 
Sep 25, 1999   and also corrects an MXG error in the HH/MM/SS fields    
               that could cause the SAPTIME date to be a day later than 
               the actual date (those fields are actually PK format, but
               they were input with PIB format, so an HH of '18'x or    
               larger became 25 hours, and bumped the date when HH was  
               added to create SAPTIME.                                 
   Thanks to Alain Kerninon, Generali AG, AUSTRIA.

Change 17.226  An expiration date of 2099366 caused INVALID VALUE FOR   
Sep 18, 1999   although ORGEXPDT still contained the 2099366 value.     
               Since 2099366 itself is an invalid value (2099 is not a  
               leap year), MXG's algorithm for invalid dates (which is  
               to set the calculated expiration date to 31Dec2099 so    
               that any calculation on days-to-expire will be large) is 
               now extended to protect the invalid date of 2099366,     
               by inserting                                             
                 (YREXPDT=199 AND DAYEXPDT GE 365) OR                   
               after the  (YREXPDT=99 AND DAYEXPDT GE 365) OR statement 
               in two places.

   Thanks to J. Hohring, HUK-Coburg, GERMANY.                           
Change 17.225  SAS/GRAPH examples are now updated to report             
GRAFWORK         BY SYSPLEX SYSTEM;  instead of just                    
Sep 18, 1999     BY SYSTEM;                                             
   Thanks to Tom Kelman, Sun Trust, USA.                                
Change 17.224  Member IMACKEEP was not included in TYPETAND, but it now 
TYPETAND       has been added after the include of member VMACTAND.     
Sep 17, 1999                                                            
   Thanks to Steve Hurley, National Westminster Bank, ENGLAND.          
Change 17.223  Report example fails if there were more than one SYSTEMs 
ANAL42         data, because the PROC SORT DATA=JIM2 OUT=JIM;  and DSD  
Sep 15, 1999                     BY DESCENDING IOCOUNT;                 
               should have been BY SYSTE DESCENDING IOCOUNT;            
   Thanks to Freddie Arie, Lone Star Gas, USA.                          
Change 17.222  Support for APAR OW39508 adds support for 7060 Multiprise
FORMATS        3000 Enterprise Server's new EIO (Emulated I/O) and DSD  
Sep 15, 1999   (Direct System Device) type of CHPIDs.  MXG Format named 
               $MG073CD decodes the CHPID type and was updated for these
               two new entries, plus additional entries that were in the
               complete list (which should have been in the APAR text,  
               but was not printed there).                              
Change 17.221  Deaccumulation of WEBSERVR dataset had DURATM and        
VMACNTSM       STARTIME missing because PREVWEBS=SYSTEM should have been
Aug 27, 1999   PREVWEBS=WEBSERV.  Additional variables are deaccumulated
               and minor other corrections were made.                   
   Thanks to Jim Quigley, CONED, USA.                                   
Change 17.220  SMF type 110 subtype 0 records written by CICS 5.1 caused
VMAC110        JCRLL=0 MXG error message, because MXG expected the new  
Aug 27, 1999   Journal Format SMF records in CICS 5.2 instead of 5.1!   
               To correct, find the two IF statement with comments that 
               contain "Journal Format" and change them to now read:    
            IF SMFPSRVR LT 51 THEN DO /* PRE 5.1 JOURNAL FORMAT */      
   Thanks to Andre van de Riet, Hudson Williams Europe, THE NETHERLANDS.
Change 17.219  SAS ITSV CPDUPUPD fails with APPARENT MACRO error because
DIFFROSC       was still in these members.  The SASAUTOS was changed to 
TYPEIMS        Change 16.066, and since they are set in member CONFIG,  
TYPEIMS1       those old statements in these members were deleted so as 
Aug 23, 1999   to eliminate the error.                                  
   Thanks to Jens Mohring, HUK Coburg, GERMANY.                         
   Thanks to Harald Seifert, HUK Coburg, GERMANY.                       
Change 17.218  Support for Top Secret Release 5.1 (INCOMPATIBLE, due to 
VMAC80         the need for a specific test to recognize Top Secret type
VMAC80A        80 records from the standard IBM type 80 record).  To fix
Aug 23, 1999   MXG to support this release, you need only to add        
                  OR RACFVRSN=051X                                      
               to the existing test for Top Secret Versions.            
   Thanks to Peter Vines, THE University of Virginia, USA.              
Change 17.217  The member still contained a %INCLUDE for EXTY94 instead 
VMAC94         of invoking the _ETY94 substitution macro, so overriding 
Aug 16, 1999   the _ETY94 did not work.  Now it does.                   
   Thanks to Tom Parker, CSC/Hogan, USA.                                
======Changes thru 17.216 were in MXG 17.06 dated Aug 12, 1999======    
Change 17.216  To be Y2K Ready, ASMTAPES must be assembled with "ES6"   
VMACTMNT       when the MXGTMNT Tape Mount Monitor program is assembled 
Aug 12, 1999   for under OS/390 R1.3 or later.  Your old MXGTMNT program
               that had been assembled with "ES5" or "ESA" still ran on 
               OS/390 R1.3, so there was no error to alert you that the 
               "ES6" was now required, but if you are still running the 
               old MXGTMNT after January, 2000, the date in the INITTIME
               field will still be 1900!  IBM moved that date from a 3  
               to a 4 byte field that is only seen by "ES6".            
                  ASMTAPES documents that "ES6" is for OS/390 R1.3, but 
                  I had not previously highlighted that requirement.    
               This change protects VMACTMNT; if 1900 records are still 
               being written at your site in Jan, 2000, the variable    
               INITTIME in TYPETMNT and TYPETALO will be correct.       
   Thanks to Steve Donahue, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, USA.   
Change 17.215  The variable R791ES in this old report example became the
ANALSTOR       variable R791ESCT in Change 8.167, but the report was not
Aug 10, 1999   updated until now.                                       
   Thanks to Tony P. Steward, Post Office, ENGLAND.                     
Change 17.214  OS/390 R2.8 is already supported in MXG, as there were   
several        only minor, compatible changes, most of which have been  
Aug 10, 1999   released as APARS to the type 89, 92, and 94 SMF records.
               MXG Versions 16.09 or later can process the R2.8 records.
Change 17.213  Support for the Import/Export Statistics section in SMF  
VMAC94         type 94 adds new variables to dataset TYPE94.            
Aug 10, 1999                                                            
Change 17.212  TYPE110 SUBTYPE 2 ERROR STID=67 SKIP=80 because the value
VMAC110        of A17DT was hex '00' in the record, but MXG's statement 
Aug  8, 1999   A17DT=TRANSLATE(A17DT,' ','00'x) was incorrectly changing
               the '00'x to a blank, causing the two 40-byte sections   
               to be skipped.  Delete that line and these records will  
               be properly decoded in to the CICFCR statistics dataset. 
   Thanks to Bruce Widlund, Merrill Consultants, USA.                   
Change 17.211  TYPE74CF observations have the XSYSn variables non-blank 
VMAC74         in only one record per SYSPLEX, and you can't pick which 
Aug  8, 1999   SYSTEM's record has the info, accoring to this IBM reply:
                 To avoid collection of redundant data within a sysplex,
                 RMF selects one system as a 'master system'.  This     
                 selection is RMF internal, there is no option to select
                 the master system.  For this 'master system' all CF    
                 data, SMF 74-4 data, are collected.  For the other     
                 systems within a sysplex, the redundant but expensive  
                 CF-data are omitted (expensive in terms of CPU         
                 utilization).  That explains why we see the            
                 'Connectivity Data Section' and 'Structure Data        
                 Section' only for one system within a sysplex.  For    
                 more details, please see apar OW31699, as this was     
                 introduced with this APAR.                             
   Thanks to Dennis Wong, New York Life Insurance, USA.                 
Change 17.210 -PDB.ASUMTAPE can have the wrong JOB/READTIME/INITTIME for
ASUMTAPE       some jobs from TYPETMNT, but these events are detected   
Aug  8, 1999   and the TYPETALO information is used to identify the job 
               that caused the mount.  These mismatched events occur    
               only for jobs that went thru allocation recovery and are 
               usually few in number (5 of 2500).                       
              -PDB.ASUMTAPE can have small negative values for TAPMTDTM 
               because the TENDTIME is the sampled MXGTMNT end of mount,
               but TY21TIME is the exact dismount timestamp.  The value 
               will be less than two seconds (the default MXGTMNT sample
               rate) so to avoid negative numbers for the duration a    
               a tape is mounted, these negatives are now set to zero.

======Changes thru 17.207 were in MXG 17.05 dated Aug  5, 1999======    
Change 17.207  Microsoft SP4 and HotFixes have changed the version text 
VMACNTSM       from "Service Pack 3" to "Service Pack 4, RC 1.2", which 
Aug  5, 1999   was passed by NTSMF into its output comma delimited file,
               so an extra new field was inadvertently inserted in this 
               configuration record.  MXG now looks for that syntax and 
               appends the "RC 1.2" to the NTVERSN.  NTSMF will protect 
               the field in a future version to blank the comma.

VMXGINIT       to support dynamic changes, but by defining MACJBCK in   
Aug  5, 1999   VMXGINIT and locating &MACJBCK; at the end of IMACJBCK   
               you can now use  %LET MACJBCK=  ...  ;  syntax instream

======Changes thru 17.203 were in MXG 17.05 dated Aug  4, 1999======    
Change 17.203  If you have Dedicated CPUs in LPARs, PR/SM forces Wait   
ASUM70PR       Complete=Yes (which makes sense: to reduce overhead when 
Aug  4, 1999   there's nothing to share), but MXG's PDB.ASUM70PR reports
               100% CPU busy in that LPAR (LCPUPDTM, partition dispatch 
               time is 100% in a Wait Complete=YES LPAR) because MXG did
               not see this before!  The immediate fix to your ASUM70PR 
               member is to insert this DO group in the INCODE= section,
               immediately after the "LPARDUR=DURATM;" statement:       
                 IF LCPUDED='Y' AND LCPUWAIT='Y' THEN DO;               
                   IF PCTCPUBY GT . THEN DO;                            
                   ELSE DO;                                             
               The PCTCPUBY that is tested is MVS CPU busy for Dedicated
               CPUs, but it exists only in the SMF record from the MVS  
               System running in that LPAR.  In the ASUM70PR observation
               from other LPARs in this CEC (Central Electronic Complex)
               the dedicated LPAR CPU busy measures will be missing, as 
               they simply are unknown to the other LPARs.  If you have 
               only one LPAR in a CEC, then there is only one SYSTEM and
               the ASUM70PR data will be valid with the above fix.      
               However, this error is an opportunity to design a better 
               solution to measuring CEC/LPAR CPU busy.  The ASUM70PR   
               dataset is created per SYSTEM, but what you need is now  
               the new PDB.ASUMCEC dataset that summarizes TYPE70PR data
               by the CECSER (CPU Serial Number of the CEC/CPC), so the 
               hardware platform is measured by PDB.ASUMCEC, with true  
               CPU busy for each of the LPARs running on that CEC.      
               The structure of PDB.ASUMCEC has the same variable names 
               (except for SYSTEM, which doesn't have any meaning here),
               so your existing reporting should require minimal change.
               But MXG has to read all of the type 70 records from every
               MVS system that executes in an LPAR with Dedicated CPU to
               create true CPU measurements; you cannot measure CPU busy
               in a Dedicated-CPU-LPAR from any other LPAR's SMF record;
               if MXG does not see the true CPU busy record, the CPU for
               those dedicated engines will be missing values and the   
               total CPU busy will be wrong.                            
                  Check your EXTY70PR exit to see if there was user code
                  added to output records from only one system; delete  
                  that logic if you find it, so you output all records. 
               The bottom line is that PDB.ASUMCEC should have been the 
               dataset created long ago, but now it should correct the  
               existing error and give you a single record per box to   
               measure total and per-LPAR CPU utilizations.

Change 17.202  This example report program processes VTS SMF type 94    
ADOC94         records and replicates IBM PGM=VTSSTATS reports.  The    
ANAL94         report is documented in member ADOC94.  Remember to use

Change 17.201  APAR OW40390 identifies SMF92CPN, pathname, that may be  
VMAC92         in your type 92 OMVS/USS file records; that field is now 
Aug  2, 1999   input if present.  The APAR also adds two subtypes to SMF
Aug 10, 1999   type 94 that create two new MXG datasets for OMVS/USS:   
                  Subtype   Dataset      Description

Change 17.200  Support for IBM's TPF Operating System.                  
EXTPFxx        Forty datasets are created from the fifty or so records. 
FORMATS        Some datasets are written at monitor initialization to   
IMACTPF        map things, but the interval records are deaccumulated   
TPFINTRV       and written as individual PDB datasets, and then TPFINTRV
TYPETPF        is invoked to summarize into PDB.TPFINTRV.  This support 
VMACTPF        has been tested with data from one system, and TPFINTRV  
VMXGINIT       intervals the SA/NX/SX/SU/SP/MD/MG/FV/FS/SC records.     
VMXGTPFI       This is preliminary support, but TPFINTRV and its input  
Aug  2, 1999   datasets have been tested extensively; there are still a 
               number of questions and some variable names may change.  
                  For over two years I have requested the DSECTS for the
                  TPF records; it took a vote of the TPF Users Group to 
                  "convince" IBM it would be worthwhile to allow MXG to 
                  support this high-speed transaction processing system.
                  Formerly know at the Airline Control Program, it can  
                  drive 30,000 I/Os per second on an 8-engines CPC!     
               The initial development of the VMACTPF code took 40 hours
               across four days to write about 4,000 lines of SAS code. 
               Another 40 hours were required to add the roughly 400    
               lines to deaccumulate and validate the PDB.TPFINTRV data.

Change 17.199  Support for APAR OW39128 adds DSNAME to SMF type 80-2    
VMAC80A        Resource Access event, so that you can tell what library 
Aug  2, 1999   an audited controlled program was loaded from!  So if    
               you need to know which program library is being used by  
               which users for which programs, you can use RACF to      
               control access and write a record for each successful    
               or failed attempt to run that program and finally know   
               which STEPLIB dataset was actually used by that job!     
               Variable RPDSNAME is added to dataset TYPE8002. The APAR 
               also populates variable VOLSER in the DTP=15 section for 
               this case, but that variable is already in TYPE8002.     
Change 17.198  Variables that contain '00'x, when printed across VTAM or
VMAC110        downloaded as a text file from MVS to your PC, can cause 
Aug  2, 1999   the download to stop.  Other unprintable characters in   
               a PROC PRINT output can make your PC see an end-of-file  
               long before the real end of the file.  When these values 
               are seen for a character variable, it is either formatted
               with a HEX/$HEX format, or if the variable is normally a 
               printed variable that maybe has nulls at the end, then   
               the TRANSLATE function is used to convert nulls to blank 
               values.  Variable SMFSTRTK was formatted $HEX16. and the 
               variables A13LVW, A17FLOC, A17DTTYP, A17DT, and DS5TCBNM 
               have any nulls translated to blanks.                     
Change 17.197  Starting from ANALDSET, this new ANALJOBE, "Job Events"  
ANALJOBE       adds to the 14, 15, 64, and 30s, the information from the
Aug  2, 1999   the VSAM type 62 OPEN time, the statistics from the type 
Aug 12, 1999   42 subtype 6 TYPE42DS close, and the type 30 interval    
               records are used to capture PROGRAM name for Started     
               Tasks and long running steps whose step termination type 
               30 has not yet been seen.  Additionally, if new datasets 
               were cataloged, the 61/65/66 SMF records in TYPE6156     
               identify that activity.  The result will be a tool to    
               examine every timestamp in the life of a job, for delay  
               analysis, etc.  This phase is complete, but HSM is soon  
               to be added.                                             
               And ANALJOBE is a single step, cleaner implementation:   
                  When ANALDSET was first written in 1976, tape had to  
                  be used because of data volume, and frequent system   
                  crashes were circumvented by using multiple steps, so 
                  a recovery might not have to re-read the SMF data     
                  again!.  Reliability, cheaper DASD, and better code   
                  makes that unnecessary: two days SMF data opens used  
                  than 1000 Cylinders (a/k/a 750 MB) of //WORK space.   
               The output dataset of this algorithm, ANALJOBE, may be,  
               in a future program, merged into the ASUMTAPE dataset to 
               identify the first-open-time and last-close-time of each 
               tape dataset, to identify where FREE=CLOSE can be used to
               save tape drives.                                        
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.                                     
Change 17.196A If the CPMF segment exists in the record, but SMF73CMG,  
VMAC73         the CPMF Measurement Group is 0, MXG did not skip over   
Aug  2, 1999   the CPMF segment, and stopped reading Channels at CHPID  
               '55'x (one third of 'FF'x, because the old segment was   
               24 bytes long, the new is 72).   Also, variables CHANIND 
               CHANINDX CHANINDY SMF73CPD SMF73FG5 are now hex format.  
   Thanks to Dr. H. Pat Artis, Performance Associates, USA.             
Change 17.196  Dataset CONTROLD variable ACCOUNT2 is renamed CTLDACCT,  
VMACCTLD       so that its label does not override the real ACCOUNTn    
Aug  2, 1999   field if CTLD records are processed with BUILDPDB.  The  
               label as changed from second to first, as CTLDACCT has   
               (in ten fixed bytes) the first account field.            
   Thanks to Mike Penlington, Westpac Truse, NEW ZEALAND.               
Change 17.195  Support for STK's VTCS 2.2.0 INCOMPATIBLE change to VSM  
VMACSTC        SMF subtype 13-26 records.  Version 1 timestamps used the
Aug  2, 1999   unix epoch of 1/1/1970, which MXG handled, but now their 
               developers decided to waste my time and your time by     
               changing what was working just fine, back to what it     
               should have been in the first place, a TODSTAMP8 format. 
               And it doesn't appear that they put a version indicator  
               in their record, so I have to test each subtype to see   
               which version you have installed.  And because at least  
               one field (VTV time) was not changed to TODSTAMP, I have 
               to test each of those timestamps in case they change the 
               format again!  The test uses the first four bytes of the 
               timestamp, an algorithm that won't fail until Sep, 2042, 
               when the TOD clock wraps.  Hopefully, STK will have added
               a version indicator in their record before then.         
   Thanks to Sue Yarker, Midland Bank a/k/a HSBC, ENGLAND.              
Change 17.194  The MXG 16.04+ revisions to HP Measureware did not define
VMACMWUX       macros _HPUXCPU and _HPUXDLM in member VMACMWUX, and the 
Aug  2, 1999   examples in IMACMWUX were commented out.  The correction 
               was to define the macros in VMACMWUX, so that they are   
               defined by default in the VMAC, so they can be tailored  
               in the IMACMWUX, IMACKEEP or with %LET MACKEEP=. logic.

Change 17.191  Comments.  The Subtype 5 Interval record is automatically
ASMTAPEE       synchronized with SMF ENF Event 37, so there is no longer
Jul 28, 1999   a need to issue the console command to synchronize.      
   Thanks to Dr. Alexander Raeder, Karstadt AG, GERMANY.                
Change 17.190  The SPIN.SPINMOUN and SPIN.SPINALOC datasets were not    
ASUMTAPE       copied into the PBD library (for backup and recovery),   
Jul 28, 1999   but now they are.                                        
   Thanks to Freddie Arie, Lone Star Gas, USA.                          
Change 17.189  Member DIFFDB2 is automatically invoked by TYPEDB2, and  
DIFFDB2        it separately listed the _Sdddddd macro for each dataset 
VMACDB2        to be sorted/deaccumulated, which works fine, until you  
Jul 27, 1999   try to create only dataset DB2ACCT.  You can null all DB2
               datasets with the _NDB2 macro, and can reinstate DB2ACCT 
               with the MACRO _WDB2ACC redefinition, but then DIFFDB2   
               fails ("NO DATASET OPEN TO LOOK UP VARIABLES") when it   
               tries to sort the non-existent datasets.  You can fix the
               design flaw by nulling out each of the individual sort   
               sort macros that are listed in DIFFDB2:                  
                   %LET MACKEEP= _NDB2                                  
                                 MACRO _WDB2ACC DB2ACCT.DB2ACCT %       
                                 MACRO _SDB2ACP  %                      
                                 MACRO _SDB2ACB  %                      
                                 MACRO _SDB2ACG  %                      
                                 MACRO _SDB2PAT  %                      
                                 MACRO _SDB2ST2  %                      
                                 MACRO _SDB2STB  %                      
                                 MACRO _SDB2STR  %                      
                                 MACRO _SDB2STS  %                      
                                 MACRO _SDB2PST  %                      
                   %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(TYPEDB2);                          
               to build only the DB2ACCT.DB2ACCT dataset.  However, to  
               correct the design flaw, the definition of MACRO _SDB2   
               in VMACDB2 was changed so that it does not sort the      
               DB2ACCT dataset (just like _S110 doesn't sort CICSTRAN)  
               and DIFFDB2 now invokes _SDB2 instead of all of the      
               individual _SDB2ddd macros, so now (17.05+) you can use: 
                   %LET MACKEEP= _NDB2                                  
                                 MACRO _WDB2ACC DB2ACCT.DB2ACCT %       
                                 MACRO _SDB2 %                          
                   %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(TYPEDB2);                          
               to create only DB2ACCT.DB2ACCT.  And this protects you   
               for future datasets, and they will be listed in both the 
               _NDB2 and _SDB2 macro definitions.                       
   Thanks to Alastair Gray, Phillip Morris International, SWITZERLAND.

Change 17.183  Continued IMS Log enhancements for Fast Path transactions
TYPEIMS        is revised and made available for testing.               
Jul 21, 1999                                                            
Change 17.182  Numerous errors in OMVS/USS dataset TYPE74OM.  MXG failed
VMAC74         to divide seven variables by NRSAMPLE, so they had large 
                       OMVSCURP OMVSCURU                                
               And NRSAMPLE was not kept in TYPE74OM, but now is there. 
               Then IBM documented twelve fields as binary, but they in 
               fact contain s_float (RB4.) data, also causing largeness:
              -A few labels had TOT or TOTAL for Average variables.     
              -Note that the IBM OMVS Kernel Activity Report prints     
               CPU time in units Hundredths of a Second, so a MAX CPU   
               of 8 on their report is actually .08 CPU seconds, which  
               is what MXG variable OMVSCTMX contains.                  
              -RMF fields for Shared Memory, Memory Map Storage, and    
               Shared Storage are in bytes in the raw data, so MXG now  
               formats those variables with MGBYTES to show the true    
               MegaBytes, etc, but IBM still prints K or M after the    
               value for a factor of 1000 instead of 1024.  For Shared  
               Storage actual value 32,768,000, IBM prints 32.8M, but   
               MXG prints that true size in megabytes as 31M.

               Text of this change revised after change 18.096 added the
               variable PAVBASE instead of old variable BASE.           
Change 17.179  Using the 17.04 ANALRMFR against a 14.14-built PDB failed

Change 17.176  OMVS (Open Edition/MVS), now USS (Unix System Services)  
BUILD005       tasks create no purge records, so BUILDPB held their data
BUIL3005       in the SPIN library for SPINCNT days (in member IMACSPIN)
VMAC30         before they were OUTPUT into the PDB.STEPS and PDB.JOBS. 
Jul 20, 1999   These OMVS tasks have SUBSYS='OMVS' but TYPETASK='STC '. 
               To output the OMVS tasks without purge records, BUILD005 
               and BUIL3005 were revised to detect and to not spin OMVS 
               tasks.  To be consistent with its purpose, MXG variable  
               TYPETASK='OMVS' will now contain 'OMVS' for OMVS tasks.  
                  You can fix the SPIN problem by using member IMACSPCK 
                  by inserting:  IF SUBSYS='OMVS' THEN OKFLAG=1;        
                  until you install the version with this change.       
               Note that these JOBS/STEPS observations for OMVS tasks   
               are the TSO resources; the count of OMVS functions are in
               the TYPE30OM dataset, which was not affected.

======Changes thru 17.175 were in MXG 17.04 dated Jul 16, 1999======    
Change 17.175  The preliminary IMS Log Enhancements in Change 17.172    
ADOCIMS        required one more tweak.  The SubQ 6 time from the type  
TYPEIMSA       7 record was being applied to the following transaction  
VMACIMSA       instead of the preceding transactio for pseudo/WFI or    
Jul 16, 1999   Quick Reschedules, causing timestamps used to calculate  
               service times to be bad in occasional transactions.      
               Also, the member ADOCIMSX now exists in the MXG 17.04    
               dated Jul 16 that is now being shipped.                  
Change 17.174  IBM has confirmed Don's discovery that the R723CCHS      
VMAC7072       (MXG variable PCTDLCHS) was trashed (like 600,000%!),    
Jul 16, 1999   and will eventually fix their in counting those delays.  
               This correction recalculates by subtracting all of the   
               other wait fields so that PCTDLCHS will be valid with    
               or without the IBM correction.                           
   Thanks to Don Deese, (CPExpert), Computer Management Sciences, USA.  
Change 17.173 -Reading AS/400 data on ASCII platforms caused variable   
VMACQAPM       AS400SYN to be trash, because it wasn't converted from   
VMXGINIT       ASCII to EBCDIC when it was input as variable GDESS, but 
Jul 15, 1999   inserting these two lines after the input of GDESS:      
Jul 20, 1999      GDESS=INPUT(GDESS,$EBCDIC8.);                         
                  GDESS=TRANSLATE(GDESS,' ','80'X);                     
               will create readable values for GDESS and AS400SYN.      
               RESOLVED note is eliminated by the addition of LOLEVEL   
               in VMXGINIT as a GLOBAL macro variable with null value.  
                  Macro variable LOLEVEL was used under MVS to pass the 
                  lowest level of the DSNAME of the input file into an  
                  MXG variable (AS400SYS in this case), because there   
                  used to be no "System" name in the AS400 records.     
                  Now, the MXG variable AS400SYN contains the system    
                  name, so AS400SYS can be left blank.                  
              -The include of member IMACKEEP was missing from TYPEQAPM 
               member, so tailoring in IMACKEEP was not recognized for  
               the AS/400 processing.  It has now been added.

======Changes thru 17.172 were in MXG 17.04 dated Jul 14, 1999======    
Change 17.172  Significant enhancements to IMS log processing are now   
ASMIMSLG       available for testing.  These added members will replace 
ASMIMSL5       their counterparts in the next version of MXG, so I      
ASMIMSL6       chose to use temporary names with an X in the penultimate
JCLIMSXG       position to keep the new members apart.  For the ASM and 
JCLIMSX5       JCL members, change the X to an L, and for the TYPE and  
JCLIMSX6       VMAC members, change the X to an S, as you copy them into
TYPEIMSA       your USERID.SOURCLIB for testing.

Jul 13, 1999   these MXG members that create TYPETASK from JCTJOBID:

ASUMDB2A       added to the summarization by member ASUMDB2a in creating
Jul 13, 1999   dataset PDB.ASUMDB2A.  Comments in member ASUMDB2A list

Jul 13, 1999   set to Y in Landmark Record Collection Options, and the  
               total count of conversations is counted in TARSPCT.  So  
               if TARSPCT is greater than one, TARSPTM is recalculated  
               as the average response time of those conversations:

               dates outside the expected range (user definable, default
               earlier than 1/1/1999 or later than 1/1/2001).  This may 
               be useful in your final Y2K testing of SAS libraries.

Change 17.167  Corrections to Boole's MainView for CICS VSAM file.  The 
VMACMVCI       division of T6EP24HW by 62500 was incorrect and was thus 
Jul 12, 1999   removed.  The input of T6EUSTGO was moved back two bytes,
               by creating M6=-6; and using +M6 instead of +M4, and by  
               inserting +2 after the input to re-align with the rest of
               the data fields.

Jul 12, 1999   from DIAIMPS) overlays the record with zero for SMF6LN2, 
               that cause INPUT STATEMENT EXCEEDED error condition.     
               While IBM investigates, this circumvention resets a zero 
               SMF6LN2 to 36 so that the rest of the record is output.  
               If these invalid records are found, MXG will now print a

Change 17.165  Preliminary NTSMF support for Win 2000 Beta 3 and support
VMACNTSM       for new data and record formats for four existing objects
Jul 11, 1999   as well as protection for the new 0.8 and 0.9 records.   
               The Beta changes are incomplete, as the discover records 
               had fields with missing names that are input with place  
               holders, but the important existing fields should be ok. 
                Win 2000 Beta 3 Changes:

Change 17.164  The _SVMxxxx sort macros had PROC COPY syntax instead of 
TYPEVM         the DATA _LVMxxxx; SET _WVMxxxx; logic that is needed    
Jul 11, 1999   until the _BVMxxxx BY macros are populated.              
   Thanks to Anthony P. Lobley, EDS, ENGLAND.                           
Change 17.163  ASUM70PR discards SMF70CIN='ICF' observations so they are
ASUM70PR       not counted in NRCPUS, LPARCPUS, or PARTNCPU variables in
Jul 11, 1999   PDB.ASUM70PR (as long as you have APAR OW37565 on your   
               system - see Change 17.162).  If you have more than one  
               ICF CPU, the circumvention in member XSUM70PR from Change
               16.381 is not valid, and this revision does not depend on
               a table of SYSTEM/LCPUADDR.  It first counts the number  
               of ICF engines, and then subtracts that count from the   
               above variables in the real CPU records while deleting   
               the ICF CPU records.  It also creates new variable       
               NRICFCPU with the count of the number of ICF engines     
               found in the CPC (and whose detail can still be found in 
               the TYPE70PR 'ICF' observations), but whose data are not 
               included in PDB.ASUM70PR (nor in TRND70PR either).       
               If you use this new ASUM70PR to summarize old TYPE70PR   
               data, you will get 'SMF70CIN UNINITIALIZED' messages, but
               that has no impact unless you actually have ICF, in which
               case you will need to recreate TYPE70PR with the new     
               TYPE7072 with Change 17.162 installed.                   
Change 17.162  Support for APAR OW37565 creates SMF70CIN='CP ' or 'ICF' 
VMAC7072       in TYPE70PR dataset to identify if the CPU is a General  
Jul 11, 1999   Purpose CPU (SMF70CIN='CP '), or an Internal Coupling    
               Facility CPU (SMF70CIN='ICF').  While most sites use the 
               PDB.ASUM70PR dataset, revised by Change 17.163, for PRSM 
               measurements, if you use the PDB.TYPE70PR detail dataset 
               you will want to revise your reporting to exclude the    
               ICF CPUs from your capacity counts and measurements.     
Change 17.161  Support for APAR OW37816 adds data for new 2105 cache    
VMAC74         subsystem to dataset TYPE74CA, and the data looks very   
Jul 11, 1999   interesting with these new variables:                    
                 R7451FLG='0=NO INFO*1=RAID RANK DATA'                  
                 R7451HDD='NUMBER OF*HDDS IN*RAID RANK'                 
                 R7451SR ='RAID*RANK*FB SECTORS*READ'                   
                 R7451SW ='RAID*RANK*FB SECTORS*WRITTEN'                
                 R7451TSP='TRACKS XFERED*TO SECONDARY*PPRC VOL'         
                 R7451XCW='XRC OR CC*CONTAMINATED*WRITES'               
                 R7451XSF='XRC OR CC*SIDEFILE*READ*REQUEST'             
               The change also populates field R745XRSV, which has been 
               in dataset TYPE74CA as MXG variable RSV for some time:   
                 RSV     ='LOWER*INTERFACE*IO*(MILLISEC)'               
               And the Real Control Unit ID, R745CUID/R745DCID was added
               to both the Cache Control Section and the Cache Device   
               Data Sections.                                           
               This change has been syntax checked, but not yet tested  
               with records with the PTF installed.  This note will be  
               deleted when the change has been validated with data.    
Change 17.160  SAS requires all BY list variables to be in the 1st 4092 
ANALRMFR       bytes of the physical record, a SAS restriction that I   
Jul 11, 1999   had not hit before, but this RMF report program failed   
               when many reports were requested, as it creates a single 
               dataset with many variables.  By creating a copy of the  
               data with an added RETAIN statement (as suggested by the 
               text of the SAS Error message!!):                        
                 DATA newcopy; RETAIN list-of-BY-variables; SET oldcopy;
               the zY variables are located at the front of the newcopy.

Change 17.159  RMF Type 99 Subtype 2 variable PCDCLOCK was input as PIB 
VMAC99         but it can be negative, so it should have been input IB, 
Jul 11, 1999   and it was input from the wrong location, and new fields 
               added by OS/390 R2.6 are now decoded in dataset TYPE99_2.
   Thanks to Ralph Acorn, Safeway, USA.                                 
Change 17.158  Top Secret writes TYPE80 SMF records with RACFTYPE values
VMAC80A        of 0,103-105,109, and 255 that caused "SEGMENT SKIPPED"  
Jul 11, 1999   messages on the MXG log.  This change revised the MXG    
               logic so only five messages will be printed on the log:  
                 INPUT +RACFDLN @;                              old     
                 NSKPRACF+1;                                    new     
                 IF NSKPRACF LE 5 THEN                          new     
                   PUT  /' SKIPPED SEGMENT ' RACFEVNT= ....     old     
               Fortunately, the TYPE80xx datasets created are valid.    
               I'm awaiting test data to decode these TSS-only events,  
               and this text will be updated when MXG is enhanced to    
               deal with the TSS-only data records and fields.          
   Thanks to Marc Matthys, Hudson Williams Europe, BELGIUM.             
Change 17.157  The new _STY30TD sort macro for TYPE30TD had SMFTIME in  
VMAC30         the BY statement, but it is not kept in the dataset, and 
Jul  9, 1999   the BY list is now READTIME JOB JESNR DEVNR INITTIME.    
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.                                     
Change 17.156  Support for CICS TS 1.3 new field TRNGRPID which was     
IMACEXCL       inserted in the CICSTRAN record (INCOMPATIBLY), causing  
VMAC110        many fields to have incorrect values.  IBM did not       
Jul  7, 1999   automatically refresh my documentation when they added   
               the field (which happens to reuse a previously used field
               number, 082 decimal).  To just skip over the new field,  
               insert a line with    +28  after  CLIPADDR $EBCDIC16.    
   Thanks to Dirk Frijlink, Shell Services International, NETHERLANDS.  
Change 17.155  Support for Connect Direct Release 3.2 record 'CT'.      
VMACNDM        The documentation is wrong in their Appendix pages,      
Jul  6, 1999   but MXG tolerates the 3.2 record.  There are three       
               fields added in existing location, one of which,         
               MXG variable NDMCTDOF, is an offset to a new table,      
               but I have no example record with that offset present,   
               so the CTDTOTAL table cannot be decoded until a data     
               record with that event (process was restarted) is        
   Thanks to Fiona Crane, IBM United Kingdom, ENGLAND.                  
Change 17.154  Zero observations in dataset NSPYTIC3 and non-zero in    
VMACNSPY       NSPYETHR is the result of Change 16.147 overriding       
Jul  6, 1999   Change 15.268.  The tests for NSPYRECI have been again   
               corrected, so that for NSPYREL 4.5 and higher, only the  
               NSPYRECI is used to select ETHERNET versus TIC3, but     
               4.4 and earlier are protected by using the other flags,  
               but only for R 4.4.                                      
   Thanks to Simon D. Briggs, Allied Irish Bank, IRELAND.               
Change 17.153  Variable MCBSCRD, Uncatalog Date, is now created in HSM  
VMXGHSM        dataset set in dataset MCB from the HSM control file.    
Jul  6, 1999                                                            
   Thanks to Stephen Hahne, Capital One Financial Services, USA.        
Change 17.152  Support for MIM's user SMF record is enhanced, and a new 
EXTYMIMD       dataset is now created, with GDIF benefit counts at the  
VMACMIM        MIIPLEX LPAR level.  The new dataset keeps the old name  
Jul  6, 1999   of MIMGDBE, but is at a higher level of detail now, and  
               the lower level of detail at the enqueue QNAME level that
               was MIMGDBE is now created as dataset MIMGDBC.           
   Thanks to Martyn A. Jones, Chase, ENGLAND.                           
Change 17.151  TMS records containing DENX='DE'x are undocumented, but  
VMACTMS5       appear to be stored in records for Deleted VOLSERs, as   
Jul  6, 1999   none of the dates are populated, and Create Job Name is  
Jul 11, 1999   DELETE, and Stepname is EBCDIC zeroes.  This unexpected  
               DENX value caused MXG to print a note and a hex dump on  
               the SAS log, because Density is used to estimate the feet
               of tape used, but this note has no real impact on the TMS
               datasets created by MXG.  To suppress the notes, I added 
               ELSE IF DENX=0DEX THEN DEN=0;  after ELSE IF DENX=0E8X...
              -The %%INCLUDE SOURCLIB(EXdddddd); statements should have 
               been replaced with their _Edddddd macro invocations in   
               the 16.04 re-architecture; they are now revised so that  
               those MXG dataset exits can be overridden with MACKEEP=.

   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.                                     
Change 17.150  While support for CICS TS 1.3 was in member VMAC110, the 
IMACEXCL       support for excluded fields was not added to IMACEXCL    
Jul  5, 1999   until this change.                                       
   Thanks to Harald Seifert, Huk-Coburg, GERMANY.                       
Change 17.149  The VVDS Key Cluster Name was not converted to blanks    
VMACVVDS       if the fieldname contained '80'x or '00'x, but now, like 
Jul  5, 1999   the other names, the TRANSLATE function converts.        
   Thanks to Tom Benson, Amdahl U.K., ENGLAND.                          
Change 17.148  Cosmetic.  Label for variables DSG32NAM and DVL32NAM     
VMACDCOL       are now 'DSG FLAG*SMS 8-WAY OR*32 WAY?' and 'DVL ....'   
Jul  5, 1999

Change 17.147  MXG 17.03, "BY VARIABLES NOT SORTED IN WORK.SPIN30TD"    
BUILD005       error is corrected by moving these two existing lines:   
               from before the DATA SPIN30TD; statement, to after the   
               PROC DELETE DATA=CVRT30TD; statement, and then change    
               the CVRT30TD in both places in the PROC SORT to SPIN30TD.
   Thanks to Dirk Frijlink, Shell Services International, NETHERLANDS.  
Change 17.146  Inconsistencies and typos were corrected.                
MONTHBLD      -The BY list in WEEKBLD-MONTHBLD for TYPE89 caused NOT    
WEEKBLD        SORTED error because SYSPLEX should have been added as   
WEEKBLDT       the first var in the BY list after Change was made
VMAC25         to its VMAC.                                             
VMAC80A       -The BY list for TYPE70PR caused no error, but was changed
VMACTMO2       be consistent with its VMAC.                             
VMACTMV2      -The BY list for TYPE30_6 could error, so it was changed  
Jun 28, 1999   in WEEKBLD-MONTHBLD by inserting SYSTEM after JESNR so as
               to be consistent with its VMAC.                          
              -Typo WTY24 was changed to WTY25 in member VMAC25.        
              -Typo WTY8025 and WTY8X25 were changed to WTY8X24 in      
               member VMAC80A.                                          
              -Typo ZRBSDSIH was changed to ZRBBDSIH in VMACRMFV.       
              -Typo MONIDBD was changed to MONIDBDS in VMACTMO2.        
              -Type TMVSSSW was changed to TMVSYSSW in VMACTMV2.        
   Thanks to Fredie Arie, Lone Star Gas, USA.                           
Change 17.145  SYNCSORT variables COREREQ and COREUSED are now format as
VMACSYNC       MGBYTES (to print KB/MB/GB etc), and their stored length 
Jun 28, 1999   is increased from 4 to 8 bytes (because memory values of 
               16MB or larger cannot be stored exactly in 4 bytes).     
               If you use PROC APPEND to combine datasets with variables
               of different length, you will get an error if you do not 
               specify FORCE, and even when you specify FORCE (which I  
               recommend: I think FORCE should be PROC APPEND's default)
               you will still end up with the variables as 4-bytes.  You
               must recreate your "BASE" dataset with corrected lengths:
               DATA BASE; LENGTH list-of-variables 8; SET BASE; and then
               PROC APPEND won't fail and will have correct length 8.   
               The TYPESYNC variables that are now length 8 are:        
                 SYNVSCOR SYNVSCRT COREREQ  COREUSED                    
Change 17.144  Cosmetic.  The deaccumulation logic that was still in the
DIFFNTCP       DIFFNTCP member was moved into the _SNTCPSY macro in the 
Jun 28, 1999   VMACNTCP member; now, DIFFNTCP member invokes _SNTCPSY.  
Change 17.143  The BY list was insufficiently specified and might not   
VMAC42         remove duplicates for dataset TYPE42VL (variable SMF42VOL
Jun 24, 1999   was added to _BTY42VL), and for dataset TYPE74PA (macro  
               _BTY74PA has variables R742PTCN R742PDEV R742PODV added).
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.                                     
Change 17.142  VMXGRMFI creates PDB.RMFINTRV with up to 115 workloads,  
VMXGRMFI       but had uninitialized and missing values if you used the 
Jun 24, 1999   new WORKn= variables; those ommissions are now corrected.
              -New option PDB=PDB or SMF lets you create RMFINTRV from  
               either an existing PDB library, or directly from SMF.    
              -Comments have examples of how to create new workloads:

Change 17.141 -The utility to create the SYSIN for a tailored BUILDPDB  
UTILBLDP       did not null the _Sdddddd sort macro when you suppressed 
Jun 24, 1999   an SMF record.  Also, while most product's ID macro name 
Jul  9, 1999   is of the form _IDxxxx, a few members had the _xxxxID,   
               and these exceptions are now known by UTILBLDP logic,    
               so the correct macro name will be generated.             
              -We recommend that the ID macros for your user SMF records
               be defined in member IMACKEEP, so that anyone running an 
               MXG TYPExxxx program will get the right records selected.
               If you use UTILBLDP and specify USERADD=XXXX/NNN, it will
               create the _ID macro, but if you use only USERADD=xxxx,  
               UTILBLDP will not generate an _ID macro for product xxxx,
               and instead expects to find your _ID macro in IMACKEEP.  
              -A new parameter, IMACKEEP=, has been added, so you can   
               write all  _IDxxxx and _xxxxID macro definitions to a    
               file, and then use that file as your IMACKEEP member, if 
               you have not already created the IMACKEEP definitions.   
              -New parameter RMFINTRV will suppress creation of RMFINTRV
               dataset, and is used: if TYPE7072 is suppressed, RMFINTRV
               won't be built and warning message will be printed; if   
               other datasets needed by RMFINTRV are suppressed, the    
               PDB.RMFINTRV will be built, but warning messages will be 
               printed on the SAS log.                                  
              -If TYPE70PR dataset is detected, ASUM70PR will be added. 
              -Only the _DIFFxxx's that exist will be created.          
              -USERADD=6, 30, or 26 caused BUILD005 to fail because the 
               datasets were deleted; now they are kept for BUILD005.   
              -IMACKEEP= option will create an IMACKEEP member with your
               optional records added, etc.                             
   Thanks to Simon Briggs, Allied Irish Bank, IRELAND.                  
Change 17.140  The PROC SORT of TYPE30_D had SMFTIME specified twice; in
VMAC30         the _BTY30UD macro and at the end of the BY statement.   
Jun 24, 1999   This is not really an error, but now SAS Version 7 will  
               not permit repeats in the BY list, so the SMFTIME in the 
               BY statement was removed to satisfy SAS syntax.

VMAC7072       type 70 record (COMPATIBLE) adds flag variable STSICPC=Y 
Jun 23, 1999   if the STSI facility is available for the CPC, and adds  
               CPCMODEL (CPC Model Identifier) to TYPE70PR dataset.     
               A "CPC" is a Central Processing Complex (previous IBM    
               name: "CEC" for Central Electronic Complex), for example,
               a parallel enterprise server 9672 is a CPC, and variable 
               CPUTYPE='9672'X.  An RX6 is a model of 9672, so the new  
               variable would contain CPCMODEL='RX6' in TYPE70PR.       
               Note: Change 18.258 added CPCMODEL to TYPE70 dataset.

VMACTCP        is created by IBM with date format of yyyydddF, which is 
Jun 15, 1999   not supported by the SMFSTAMP8. format (which expects    
Jul 29, 1999   the IBM SMF "century bit" format of 0cyydddF).  With a   
               raw value 1999099F, SMFSTAMP8 creates year 3899 for date!
               The SMFSTAMP8. input was replaced with the algorithm from
               member YEAR2000 to support the unexpected date value.

Change 17.130  RMM Extract EDGHSKP, support for its four date formats:

VMACEDGR          ISO        1999/12/31  YYYY/MM/DD  YYMMDD10.

Jun 24, 1999      American   12/31/1999  MM/DD/YYYY  MMDDYY10.          
Jun 29, 1999   is implemented in this revision.  Originally, dates were 
Jul  9, 1999   stored as character fields, and MXG 16.16 converted them 
               into date variables (so you can count number-of-days),   
               but MXG 16.16 only supported the ISO format.  All four   
               date formats are now supported, but only JULIAN and ISO  
               are supported automatically, by default.  So if your RMM 
               extract dates are European or American format, you must  
               update member IMACEDGR and change the default definition 
               of MACRO _EDGRDTE YYMMDD10. %  to the desired format (or 
               you could put that redefinition in member IMACKEEP).     
              -RMM Extract Type='V' records (EDGHSKP utility) caused    
               INVALID DATA FOR RVLCDATE.  MXG was off by 6 bytes.  The 
               line with      RVCFTIME  $EBCDIC6. /*DSN*CREATE*TIME*/   
               must be deleted (it's decoded by the following HH/MM/SS).
              -Variables RDRETDAT/RVRETDAT may contain a date, but can  
               be CYCL/nnnnn or WHILECATLG, so new variables RDRETCHR/  
               RVRETCHR now contain the character string of their date. 
               If the RDRETDAT/RVRETDAT are not valid dates, they will  
               be missing values, but RDRETCHR and RVRETCHR will        
               contain the original string value.                       
              -Times are now calculated IF SS GE 0 THEN ... instead of  
               IF SS GT 0 THEN ... as zero is a valid value for SS; the 
               test is to protect if SS/HH/MM are missing, not zero.    
              -Variables RVSTBIN and RVOBIN are changed from character  
               to numberic, as they are bin numbers.

VMAC110        subtype 0 journal records with JCRLL=30, which was not   
Jun  9, 1999   not expected nor protected in VMAC110 for 4.1, so the    
               three statements  IF JCRUTRID='SA' THEN DO; are changed

Change 17.128  Utility to produce EBCDIC hex dumps under ASCII SAS was  
UDUMPEBC       enhanced with OUTPAGES= operand to limit the number of   
Jun  9, 1999   pages printed.  I needed this so I don't have to print   
               all 32760 bytes of a type 110 record if I don't need it! 
Change 17.127  Support for APAR OW29849, which adds variables counting  
VMAC88         writes and suspends by the system logger; this APAR also 
Jun  9, 1999   improves the write performance of IXGWRITE by offloading 
               asynchronously to overlap I/O.                           
======Changes thru 17.126 were in MXG 17.03 dated Jun  8, 1999======

ASMMNVW        MainView history file decompression SAS Infile Exit that 
Jun  7, 1999   decompresses on the data on the fly.  The new algorithm  
               supports both the original implementation as well as the

Change 17.124  Support for TYPE 42 Subtypes 7 NFS File Usage and subtype
EXTY42NF       8 NFS User Session Statistics, creates new TYPE42NF and  
EXTY42NU       TYPE42NU.  TYPE42NF File has only the end time; there is 
FORMATS        no OPEN/Start time, but includes counts in bytes and I/O 
IMAC42         blocks.  TYPE42NU User Session interval record has start 
VMAC42         and session end times, elapsed/active durations, bytes   
VMXGINIT       read/written for network/files during the session.  Both 
Jun  5, 1999   TYPE42NF and TYPE42NU contain RACFUSER,RACFGRUP, the unix
               Process and Group Ids, IP Address of the client host and 
               the client host name.  Some field names in subtype 7 are 
               the same as existing subtype 15 field names, so some new 
               variables are named S42xxx instead of SMF42xxx.  Two new 
               formats were added to decode NFS variables.  These two   
               subtypes have existed since 1994, but no one noticed, as 
               they are only documented in "NFS Customization and Ops"  
               manual; they are not listed in the SMF manual!           
   Thanks to Mat J.H. Elbersen, Rabobank, THE NETHERLANDS.              
Change 17.123  Support for SoftAudit Version 7.1 COMPATIBLY added the   
VMACSFTA       CPU Product Group and CPU Product Version variables to   
Jun  4, 1999   the SOFTPROD Installed Products dataset.                 
Change 17.122  Support for STK's NearOAM V2.2 COMPATIBLY added variables
VMACNOAM       like intercept and scheduling datetimestamps, the name of
Jun  4, 1999   the requesting job, name of the object, ... to TYPENOAM. 
   Thanks to  Fiona Crane, Sun Alliance Insurance Group, ENGLAND.       
Change 17.121  Variable SMF88AWB was mis-documented by IBM as RB8., but 
VMAC88         it is a PIB8.  Variable SMF88AIT was a character string, 
Jun  4, 1999   but is actually a TODSTAMP value, so it is now decoded as
               numeric and formatted as DATETIME21.2.  The subtype 11   
               record has an observation written at the end of each     
               interval with blank SMF88STN (structure name), with only 
               SMF88ALS (log streams connnected at end of interval).    
               The TYPE8811 dataset now has variable SMF88LTD (interval 
               end datetimestamp) kept from the preceding subtype one,  
               since there is no interval end value in TYPE8811.  Also, 
               there is no interval start nor interval duration in the  
               subtype 1, so the rates cannot be calculated without an  
               extra de-accumulation step to construct the duration of  
               the interval.  Pending IBM's reply as to whether they    
               will correct the problem, and due to overwhelming nonuse 
               thus far, I have not added deacculumulation yet.         
               Since SMF88LTD is on the GMT clock and since there is no 
               GMT offset in the record, the times cannot be converted  
               to local time of day.                                    
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.                                     
Change 17.120  For Goal Mode (a/k/a Workload Manager Mode), the PERFGRP 
VMAC30         variable had value of zero in type 30s but missing in 72 
Jun  2, 1999   so it is now set missing in type 30s, so it won't be     
               confused with Compat Mode PERFGRP=0, and so that BY lists
               can contain PERFGRP SRVCLASS to merge step interval data 
               with either TYPE72 or TYPE72GO data.  To know from the   
               job's TYPE30s/PDB.JOBS datasets if a job ran under Goal  
               Mode or under Compat Mode, you can now test IF PERFGRP=. 
               (or alternatively, IF SRVCLASS GT ' ') and both are true 
               for Goal Mode) and both are false if Compat mode.        
Change 17.119  SyncSort supports up to 32 sort work areas, but MXG had  
VMACSYNC       only decoded the first twelve.  Now all thirty-two sets  
Jun  2, 1999   of the eight variables are created for all possible.     
   Thanks to Chairat Tiajanpan, KTB, THAILAND.                          
Change 17.118  Minor cleanup.  The default DDNAME for the CIMSTEMP      
TYPSCIMS       temporary dataset is now //WORK instead of //PDB, and    
VMXGINIT       member TYPSCIMS now invokes _S macros to sort the        
Jun  1, 1999   CIMSDBDS, CIMSDB2, and CIMSPROG datasets into the default

Change 17.116  Support for APAR OW37091 for Measured Usage (MULC) adds  
VMAC89         support for Concurrent CP Upgrades ("the capability to   
May 31, 1999   increase the number of usable CPs without requiring a    
               hardware IML or operating system IPL").  New fields are  
               added to the ID section, so they are kept in both usage  
               and state datasets: Type/Model/Manufacturer/Plant/etc,   
               counts of the configured and standby CPUs, and the value 
               of SMF89CPC, the "CPU Capability" value, an integer that 
               specifies the CPU capability of one engine.  While there 
               is no formal description of the algorithm used to create 
               the value, CPU Capability Value is used as an indication 
               of the capability of this CPU relative to the capability 
               of other CPU models.  Then to adjust that single engine  
               Capability value to get the actual value for your number 
               of CPs in use, you use the Multiprocessing CPU Capability
               Adjustment Factor for that number of CPs.  There are up  
               to fifteen factors, each containing the percentage of the
               single engine CPU capability for that number of CPs: MXG 
               variable SMF89MA1 contains the percentage for 2CPs, and  
               SMF80MAF contains the percentage if there are 16CPs.  The
               new information comes from the Store System Information  
               Instruction (STSI).                                      
Change 17.115  IMF/CIMSTRAN variable FLGSPCHR decoded 'W' for WFI, but

Change 17.111  Variables TAPEDRVS/TAPE3420/TAPE3480/TAPE3490/TAPE3590 in
BUIL3005       observations in TYPE30_V, TYPE30_4 and TYPE30_5 datasets 
BUILD005       count only the number of tape devices allocated in each  
EXTY30TD       physical step record, and that is still true after this  
FORMATS        change.  But this redesign in BUILD005/BUIL3005 will now 
IMAC30         count the number of unique tape drive addresses that were
SPUNJOBS       allocated by the step (across all multiple records) in   
VMAC30         those TAPExxxx variables in the PDB.STEPS dataset.       
VMXGINIT       Note, however, that even the corrected TAPExxxx count for
May 27, 1999   the step is not necessarily the number of concurrent tape
Jun  7, 1999   drives that were used by the step, but is just the total 
               number of drives allocated by the step: you cannot tell  
               from the step data whether those allocations were        
               sequential or concurrent.  In addition to changes in the 
               BUILD005/BUIL3005 members, a new "temporary" dataset     
               WORK.TYPE30TD is created by VMAC30, with one observation 
               for each tape DD segment, that is used to correctly count
               tape drives.  This also required a new SPIN.SPIN30TD     
               dataset to hold these new data for incomplete jobs, and  
               revisions to member SPUNJOBS, as well as logic to convert
               spun Step records tape drive counts to the new design.   
               And macros _S30 and _N30 were corrected in member VMAC30 
               so they include TY30UD and TY30UV datasets that had been 
               Note 10/19/2000:  The TAPEDRVS/TAPExxx variables were    
               removed from the SPINxxxx datasets (because they were the
               old, probably wrong values), and were relocated into the 
               SPIN30TD dataset (tape allocation count by DEVNR) that   
               will be used tomorrow to put TAPEDRVS/TAPExxxx variables 
               back in the output PDB.STEPS and PDB.JOBS.               
Change 17.110  Variables EXCPNODD/IOTMNODD are now corrected, and the   
BUILD005       observations with MULTIDD='Y' in PDB.STEPS dataset will  
BUIL3005       no longer exist (although they still will exist in the   
SPUNJOBS       TYPE30_4 and TYPE30_5 datasets).  Instead of there being 
May 25, 1999   multiple observations for those steps, there now is only 
               one observation for each step in PDB.STEPS, so the number
               of observations in PDB.STEPS will be reduced by this fix.
               This redesign sums the STEP I/O counts from the multiple 
               step records to create only one observation per step, and
               it re-calculates the NODD "Not Recorded in a DD" values. 
               Previously, the NODD numbers were TOTL - TODD, but when  
               the step had MULTIDD='Y' records, the TODD counts in the 
               "real" step record (the one with MULTIDD=' ') did not    
               include the TODD counts from the MULTIDD='Y' records, so 
               the NODD values in the MULTIDD=' ' observation were too  
               high, and the NODD values in the MULTIDD='Y' observation 
               were missing (because the TOTL values exist only in the  
               MULTIDD=' ' record).  The values of the NODD variables in
               the PDB.JOBS dataset were also incorrect, because they   
               were sums of the incorrect NODD values from PDB.STEPS.   
               This internal redesign splits the STEPS dataset into     
               STEPS and STEPSIO, with all EXCP/IOTM counts in STEPSIO, 
               which is VMXGSUM'd and merged to re-created STEPS with   
               NODD calculations now based on the TODD sum from all     
               records, and so there is no longer any need to create the
               MULTIDD='Y' observations in the PDB.STEPS dataset.       
               This change was precipitated by the analysis of a step   
               record from TSO-in-batch that executed DB2 that had very 
               large values for EXCPNODD and IOTMNODD.  The large NODD  
               counts were completely valid, had nothing to do with any 
               MULTIDD='Y' steps, and in fact were caused a design flaw 
               in the site's DB2 QMF exit that caused repeated loads of 
               the same module from a linklist library, and all linklist
               accesses are captured by the NODD counts.                
               But before I knew that, I had asked Chuck Hopf to scan   
               his PDB for executions under TSO that called DB2 to see  
               if DB2 might be involved in high NODD counts.  While his 
               data proved high NODD counts were not DB2 related, he did
               serendipitously find MULTIDD='Y' steps with the incorrect
               NODD counts that led to this redesign.

Change 17.107  Support for OS/400 V4.3.0 (compatible) was in MXG 16.16, 
VMACQAPM       as a comparison of the 4.3 and 4.2 record formats found  
May 21, 1999   no changes.                                              
Change 17.106  PDB.ASUMTAPE observations with STATUS='MISSEDMNT' due to 
ASUMTAPE       to the fuzzyness of sampled mount times in MXGTMNT are   
May 20, 1999   now STATUS='MATCHED', by changing the TYPETMNT timestamp 
               used in sorting the Allocate, Mount, and Dismount events.
               The problem is that the timestamp of the TYPE21 record   
               is exact, whereas the TMNTTIME/TENDTIME (mount start and 
               mount end times) are up to 2 seconds later (with MXGTMNT 
               sampling default value) than their real event time.      
               Using TENDTIME gave good results, but when TENDTIME was  
               later than TY21TIME, the sequence was A/D/M and the mount
               was missed.  By using SMFTIME=MAX(TMNTTIME,TENDTIME-2),  
               in the step that creates MOUNT dataset, those now match. 
              -Status of known causes of STATUS='MISSEDMNT':            
               -tape ape "knocking-down" the outstanding mount for a    
                specific volser by mounting the wrong VOLSER, perhaps   
                by accident, perhaps intentionally so that the message  
                "Mount Pending For 10 Minutes" won't be created, which  
                stops the MVS console operator from harrasing tape ape. 
                  Tape apes know they can put in any VOLSER and that MVS
                  Volume Verification will reject and dismount the wrong
                  tape (so the job doesn't fail) and that the new mount 
                  event for the original VOLSER resets mount pending!   
                In this case, MXGTMNT still was in mount pending state, 
                so the second mount does not reset the TMNTTIME start of
                mount pending, but the TENDTIME end of mount does not   
                occur until after the bad mount was dismounted and the  
                correct VOLSER was verified, so the TY21TIME is in the  
                middle of the mount start and end times:                
                               Wrong Vol                   Right Vol    
                  TMNTTIME      TY21TIME      TENDTIME      TY21TIME    
                 10:50:51.26   10:52:15.96   10:52:39.00   10:58:29.11  
                ASUMTAPE creates an observation for the dismount of the 
                wrong volume with STATUS=MISSEDMNT, but I can't yet see 
                how to status that mount as a "wrong volume mount", or  
                even if that is needed!  ASUMTAPE also creates the real 
                observation for the mount of the right volume, and its  
                TAPMNTTM=TENDTIME-TMNTTIME does include all of the delay
                caused by mounting-the-wrong-volume, because the real   
                mount (and this job) is still pending until the correct 
                VOLSER is mounted).                                     
               -one mount of a tape by one job that was not used but the
                tape was then picked up (without a new mount event, as  
                the tape was in the drive) by a second job.  The first  
                mount is output to EXTRAMNT dataset rather than ASUMTAPE
                and the second job has ASUMTAPE obs with MISSEDMNT.     
               -tape swap (an I/O error caused your VOLSER to be moved  
                to a different physical tape drive) creates an extra    
                mount event for each swap, and MXG properly creates an  
                obs in ASUMTAPE, so these mounts are true, counted mount
                events, but they were not caused by the job.            
              -I may investigate if a further post-processing step is   
               needed to merge TYPETSWP to identify mounts caused by    
               tape swaps, to detect passing of an unused tape from one 
               job to another, or to identify "kicked-down" mounts.     
              -Note that observations in PDB.ASUMTAPE with MISSEDMNT for
               STATUS are still completely valid tape mount events, with
               true dismount time, bytes, etc,; it just that the start  
               and end of tape mount time are not known because there   
               was no MXGTMNT mount event found.

May 14, 1999   but the program should work under EBCDIC reading the raw 
               datafile that were sent to MVS (and converted to EBCDIC).

Change 17.098  Enhanced creation of RMFINTRV now permits over 100 unique
VMXGRMFI       workloads to be defined.                                 
May 14, 1999                                                            
Change 17.097  MXG 17.01 only.  Some dataset names for AICS and APAF    
VMACAICS       were misspelled in their _Wdddddd macro definition (but  
VMACAPAF       if you used the _Sdddddd or TYPSxxxx member to sort from 
May 14, 1999   //WORK to the //PDB, there was no error).                
   Thanks to Freddie Arie, TXU, USA.                                    
Change 17.096  Support for CICS TS 1.2 Journal segment for SAP.  CICS TS
VMAC110        1.2 has two different formats of Journal data in SMF 110,
VMXGINIT       and only GLRHTYPE=1 was previously validated, but now the
May 14, 1999   GLRHTYPE=2 segment (which happens to be used by SAP) are 
May 17, 1999   recognized and decoded, eliminating "SOR TYPE NOT ONE"   
               MXG error message and hex dump of the record.            
               This change also corrected a 17.01-only error: the macro 
               &WCICACC was repeated inside other _WCICxxx definitions, 
               and &WCICJRN is now defined in VMXGINIT.                 
   Thanks to Roy Pennington, Vertex, ENGLAND.                           
Change 17.095  In an undocumented, verbal change to SYNCSORT records,   
VMACSYNC       new variable MAXSORT='Y' or blank if the MAXSORT option  
May 13, 1999   was specified for a sort.                                
   Thanks to John Parla, Cigna, USA.                                    
Change 17.094  Extensive additional decoding of RACF bit flags create   
FORMATS        new one-byte character variables to identify the keywords
VMAC80A        specified, keywords ignored, keywords in error, and many 
May 13, 1999   other options of RACF events.  Since each RACF command   
               has a unique set of keywords, and there can be many in   
               each single record, the naming convention and variable   
               labels convey the keyword specified/ignored etc.  The    
               naming convention is  KWnnSPmm for Specified Keywords,   
               KWnnIGmm for Ignored Keywords, and similar names for     
               other options, class names, and other flags.  For example
               the TYPE8019 (PERMIT) command has fourteen keyword       
               specification variables, named KW19SP00-KW19SP13,        
               and the corresponding keyword ignored variables are      
               named KW19IG00-KW19IG13:                                 
               About 800 new variables are created, with a max of 205 in
               one dataset (TYPE8024), but at one byte per variable, the
               impact is minimal.   If you use PROC PRINT SPLIT='*', the
               variable label prints as column heading and you can see  
               which keywords were specified/ignored/errored/etc.  You  
               can look at member DOCVER to see what variable name is   
               created for each keyword, or you can use PROC CONTENTS to
               see the label, but the variable label names the contents.
               This code has NOT been validated, and there was lot's of 
               opportunity for typos, so please verify with known RACF  
               events that all of the bits are mapped correctly.        
              -One new format was added and old one enhanced.           
   Thanks to Michael Brench, National Bank of Australia, AUSTRALIA.     
Change 17.093  The LRECL=xxx value for each Tandem file was specified on
VMACTAND       each INFILE statement, but that was removed so that you  
May 11, 1999   don't have to modify the VMAC for new Tandem versions;   
               instead you can use the LRECL of the dataset on MVS or   
               a FILENAME statement with LRECL=xxx to specify the LRECL.
   Thanks to Kim S. Johnson, NationsBank, USA.                          
Change 17.092  Support for SOFTAUDIT 6.1.2 (COMPATIBLE) added three new 
VMACSFTA       fields at the end of the Installed Products File.        
May 11, 1999                                                            
   Thanks to Thomas Heitlinger, FIDUCIA IT AG, GERMANY                  
Change 17.091  Support for TELEVIEW 4.3 (INCOMPATIBLE).  Field TELUSER  
VMACTELE       was expanded to 9 bytes and 3 bytes were inserted in the 
May 10, 1999   subtype 1 and subtype 2 record.  In addition, while the  
May 18, 1999   variable SMFTIME has been accurate, none of the internal 
               datetimestamps were validated and all were wrong, but now
               are corrected and Y2K compliant!                         
   Thanks to Yvonne McDonough, USDA NITC, USA.                          
Change 17.090  Some QXxxxxxx variables in DB2STATS were misaligned and  
VMACDB2        wrong, starting with QXRLFDPA.  The stat code was revised
May 10, 1999   and the line with +4 after QXDEGENC was replaced with the
               input of QXRLFDPA and its associated +3, and the tests   
               for length were corrected: the 256 to 252, 284 to 280,   
               and 316 to 312.  Only DB2STATS was affected; the QXxxxxxx
               variables in DB2ACCT were not misaligned.                
   Thanks to Ken Michalik, Kraft Foods, Inc, USA.                       
Change 17.089  Unused.                                                  
Change 17.088  Variable BANDTIME in NPM dataset NPMINNSA is missing.    
VMAC28         The equation should be BANDTIME=DHMS( ... BANDTTME);     
May 10, 1999   instead of the typo    BANDTIME=DHMS( ... BANDTIME);.    
   Thanks to Mr. Holscher, BWS Munster, GERMANY                         
Change 17.087  Documentation.  If your DB2 datasets are on tape, you    
ANALDB2R       must specify DATASET=DDNAME, arguments and PDB=PDB to    
May  6, 1999   prevent TWO OPEN SEQUENTIAL DATASETS ON ONE TAPE error.  
               If your DB2ACCT, DB2ACCTP, and DB2ACCTB datasets are on  
               tapes with DDNAMES of DB2ACCT, DB2ACCTP, and DB2ACCTB,   
               then you would specify                                   
                      ... );                                            
               The documentation in the comments has been revised;      
               the code has been in place since version 14.14!

   Thanks to Harold Wentz, Pershing, USA.                               
Change 17.086  The DCOLLECT example had LRECL=644 in comments, but you  
JCLDAYDS       must specify LRECL=32756.  With LRECL=644, DCOLLECT sets 
May  6, 1999   a Return Code of 4 and a message that it encountered a   
               record that was too long to process, but does not ABEND, 
               and some of the records are not created.  (Fortunately,  
               the long records are the SMS structure definitions for   
               Storage Class, Storage Group, etc., rather than the real 
               Dataset and Cluster records used for accounting/sizing.

TYPESRMH       The Null Record dataset is created from records that have
TYPSSRMH       no Device nor Application segment, just a 36-byte record;
VMACSRMH       it is not clear of what use they may be.

Change 17.084 -The %INCLUDE of IMACIMSA should have been just before the
TYPEIMSA       MACRO _VARxxxx definition, and has been moved, but there 
VMACIMSA       was no error since IMACIMSA is re-included by TYPEIMSA.  
May 15, 1999  -The _KIMSBMP macro was added to the step that builds the 
               BMPS dataset so that full tailoring is supported.        
   Thanks to Chris Weston, SAS Institute, USA.                          
Change 17.083  The label for variable STRTTIME was changed to INTERVAL  
VMAC25         START TIMESTAMP because in BUILDPD3, the type 25 label   
May  4, 1999   was overriding the CICS and other Interval datasets.     
               I should have chosen a different name for the JES3 TYPE25
               dataset, but its too late for that now, but changing its 
               label will eliminate the JES3 confusion.                 
   Thanks to Neal Musitano, Jr., Department of Veterans Affairs, USA.   
Change 17.082  DATASET PDB.TYPE200 NOT FOUND results when TYPSIDMS is   
VMACIDMS       used; the four lines _STY200, _STY201, _STY202, _STY203  
May  4, 1999   are deleted as the TYPE200 members were IDMS 10.2 only.  
   Thanks to Alan Deepe, Perot Systems Europe, ENGLAND.                 
Change 17.081  The invocation of the sort macro, _STMVS, should have    
TYPSTMV2       been spelled _STMV2 in member TYPSTMV2.                  
May  4, 1999

======Changes thru 17.079 were in MXG 17.01 dated May  3, 1999======    
Change 17.079  Yet another enhancement to the UTILBLDP utility that will
UTILBLDP       create the //SYSIN file BUILDMXG to build your tailored  
May  1, 1999   PDB.  This iteration detects if CICS, DB2, TMNT, or TY74 
May 14, 1999   data was requested, and if the ASUM member appropriate to
               that data are not included, they will be added with a new
               comment "/*RECOMMENDED*/".  New options to run BUILDMXG  
               instead of creating the file, INCLAFTR= to name members  
               to be included after BUILDMXG runs, and SPINUOW to pass  
               the SPIN count for ASUMUOW build, if requested.          
Change 17.078  Change 17.029 was also needed in MONTHBLD; two lines with
MONTHBLD       non-blank character in column 72 caused failure, even tho
May  1, 1999   the syntax should be valid.                              
   Thanks to David Gibney, Washington State University, USA.            
Change 17.077  Chuck discovered that some PDB.ASUMTAPE observations with
ASUMTAPE       STATUS=MISSEDMNT had TMNTTIME incorrect and traced some  
May  3, 1999   to be caused by "multi-unit,never-used" tape mounts:     
May 20, 1999      Using UNIT=(TAPE,2) allocates two tape drives, and    
See 17.106        two scratch tapes will be initially mounted.  When a  
                  volume fills, writes switch to the second drive while 
                  a new tape is mounted on the first drive, so at CLOSE 
                  of the DDNAME, there will always be a hanging mount   
                  that was never used and never opened.  But MXGTMNT    
                  saw that mount, and at deallocation time it writes the
                  SMF record with the actual (earlier) mount start and  
                  end times; MXG sets VOLSER='UNKNWN' because without an
                  OPEN, the VOLSER is unknown.  And IBM's type 21 SMF   
                  record contains blanks for VOLSER for the dismount!   
               This and other discoveries led to revisions in internal  
               algorithms in ASUMTAPE, described below, but there was   
               no error in the number of observations in PDB.ASUMTAPE.  
               Some obs that previously had STATUS='MISSEDMNT' will now 
               be MATCHED, and a few will now be STATUS='WRONGVOL'.     
              -The VOLSER=UNKNWN mount records are no longer discarded. 
               They are for those "multi-unit,never-used" mounts in     
               which the MXGTMNT monitor is still waiting for a VOLSER, 
               and their type 21 record has blanks for volser.          
              -The "sorttime" used for MOUNT records is now based on the
               end of mount timestamp, TENDTIME, moved two seconds back 
               to account for the MXGTMNT timer pop, but not moved back 
               before the start of the mount timestamp, TMNTTIME:       
                     sorttime = MAX(TMNTTIME,TENDTIME-2);               
               These choices for sort order were tested:                
                 TMNTTIME -  start of mount (sampled) timestamp.  Used  
                             early, but found to cause many MISSEDMNT   
                             events, correcting moved it before ALOCSTRT
                             so TENDTIME was used in 17.01/17.02.       
                 TENDTIME -  end of mount (sampled) timestamp.  Used    
                             in 17.01 and 17.02, revised above in 17.03.
                             Without subtraction, a few were found with 
                             TENDTIME after the TY21TIME, which created 
                             MISSEDMNT events, but the 2 second pop now 
                             sorts the mount record before the dismount,
                             and the MAX(TMNTTIME) ensures the it will  
                             not be shifted to earlier than TMNTTIME (as
                             that could put the mount before allocate). 
                 SMFTIME  -  when record written, can be after TENDTIME,
                             eg., for "multi-unit,never-used" mounts    
                             whose SMF records are written at (sampled) 
                             deallocate time, so SMFTIME can even be    
                             after TY21TIME.                            
              -Some MISSEDMNTs had mount records, but their mounts had  
               been discarded due to missing JESNR, which was used to   
               recognizing a new JOB.  I have revised that logic to not 
               require JESNR, and thus can keep those mount records.    
              -Some MISSEDMNTs are for "start-up effect missed-mounts"  
               whose mount had occurred before the begin time of the SMF
               file (ALOCSTRT earlier than the first dismount), but they
               occur on the first day's run of ASUMTAPE and are         
               eliminated when the SPIN library takes effect on the     
               second run.                                              
              -Some MISSEDMNTs are now STATUS=TY21ONLY, because the test
               is now  IF ALOCSTRT LE TY21TIME LE ALOCEND THEN  (added  
               test for ALOCEND) so that 21s with times after the end of
               the held alloc record are recognized.                    
              -Some MISSEDMNTs are now STATUS=WRONGVOL, because I found 
               I can recognize many instances of the operator putting in
               (intentionally) an incorrect volume (when he/she cannot  
               find the correct volser, the stick in any tape to knock  
               down the outstanding mount message).                     
              -Some remaining MISSEDMNTs in non-VTS environment are the 
               result of allocation recoveries when allocation switching
               occurs; sometimes the mount was seen but the wrong job   
               name was put in the mount record so the mount did not    
               match up.  A new version of MXGTMNT is in testing that   
               may be able to detect this state and correct or eliminate
               those bad mount records.                                 
              -This revision now matched 13,822 tape mounts, found 5    
               WRONGVOL, 26 TY21ONLY, and only 24 are now MISSEDMNTs!   
   Thanks to Chuck Hopf, MBNA, USA.

Change 17.075  The SORT order in these examples did not include SYSPLEX 
ANALMTP        variable in the PLOTs of TYPE70 and RMFINTRV, causing    
ANALMPL        a NOT SORTED error.  SYSPLEX was added to RMF sort order 
Apr 30, 1999   in MXG Change 16.288 but these examples were overlooked. 
   Thanks to MP Welch, SPRINT, USA.                                     
Change 17.074  EXCP/IOTM variables did not exist in TYPE434 because the 
VMAC434        "%INCLUDE SOURCLIB(IMAC434);" statement should have been 
Apr 30, 1999   "%INCLUDE SOURCLIB(IMAC30IO,IMAC434);".  This error was  
               introduced in the MXG 16.04 redesign.

======Changes thru 17.073 were in MXG 17.01 dated Apr 29, 1999======    
Change 17.073 -SAS Version 7 causes error message on SYSMSG that options
AUTOEXEC       CODEPCT and BLKSIZE(TAPE) are not supported in V7, but   
CONFIGV7       there a return code of zero is set, so there is no real  
Apr 28, 1999   error condition.  To eliminate those messages, however,  
               new CONFIGV7 member exists and it can be used instead of 
               CONFIG in your MXG SAS JCL procedure.  (Note that members
               CONFIG, CONFIG07 and CONFIG08 are identical, and they are
               for SAS Version 6.07 thru 6.09.).                        
               Note: Feb 17, 2000:  Members CONFIGV8 and CONFIGV7 are   
               the same and eliminate warning messages on the SAS log   
               with SAS Version 8.                                      
              -For ASCII execution, member AUTOEXEC is the equivalent of
               CONFIG and it has been updated to pass the same options  
               for ASCII MXG execution as are set by CONFIGV7 for MVS.  
Change 17.072  ANALDALY's sort order had not been updated to include the
Apr 28, 1999   NOT SORTED error message.                                
   Thanks to MP Welch, SPRINT, USA.                                     
Change 17.071  Duplicate obs were detected and deleted from MQMACCT data
VMAC116        set (type 116 MQ-series accounting) because identical 116
Apr 28, 1999   records are created, in pairs and triplets (284 removed  
               of 24,000).  The sort macro _BTY116 was expanded to hold 
               the full set of unique variables, but each observation is
               from a different SMF record, so variable SMFRECNR was    
               added to the KEEP list, so that no records are duplicates
               and so none are deleted by the SORT. (TYPE116 does not   
               sort, so it deleted no observations; only if you used the
               TYPS116 member or the _S116 or _Sty116 macros were dupes 
               removed.)  Further investigation with IBM is planned.    
               Note added Feb 18, 2000:  While SMFRECNR was added to the
               KEEP= list for dataset MQMACCT, it was not added to the  
               BY-list macro, because it would prevent removal of dupes 
               that came in two different SMF-reading jobs.  See the    
               sort revisions in Change 18.001 and discussion there.    
   Thanks to Freddie Arie, Texas Utilities, USA.                        
Change 17.070  Using ANALCNCR to count concurrency failed if the values 
ANALCNCR       for start or end were missing.  ANALCNCR now deletes any 
Apr 28, 1999   input observations with missing timestamps (and reports  
               how many if any were found).                             
   Thanks to Greg Jackson, National Life of Vermont, USA.               
Change 17.069  Thirty-nine instances of "&NUM.2  "                      
VMACEDGR       were changed to          "&NUM.2. "                      
Apr 28, 1999   Retention Date field RDRETDAT can contain "WHILECATLG"   
               as date value; that string is now reported and new MXG   
               variable RDWILCAT='Y' and RDRETDAT will be missing.      
   Thanks to Jan van Lent, Hudson Williams Europe, GERMANY.             
Change 17.068  Change 16.078 increased variables CSTORE and ESTORE in   
RMFINTRV       dataset TYPE71 to eight bytes stored length, but RMFINTRV
Apr 28, 1999   had the variables in the new LENGTH 8 and in the old     
               LENGTH 4 statement; remove them from LENGTH 4 statement. 
   Thanks to Jan van Lent, Hudson Williams Europe, GERMANY.             
Change 17.067  Inconsistent documentation and code, but thankfully with 
VMXGSUM        no impact.  The invocation of &INCODE1 is now located    
Apr 28, 1999   after the invocation of &INCODE instead of before, but we
               have never used &INCODE1= nor do I really think anyone   
               else would have; it was really there just for insurance  
               if we ever needed it.                                    
   Thanks to Jan van Lent, Hudson Williams Europe, GERMANY.             
Change 17.066  Several IMACs still had active macro definitions for the 
IMACxxxx       "_L and _K" macros that should have been removed in the  
Apr 21, 1999   16.04+ design (they are now defined in the VMAC, and the 
               IMAC should be only comments).  Only if you tried to use 
               the %LET MACKEEP= architecture to tailor these IMACs was 
               there a problem - your tailoring may have been ignored!  
               These IMACs were revised: IMACNTCP, IMACSTX, IMACSUIN,   
               IMACSUPR, IMACSVCC, IMACSTC, IMACICE.                    
Change 17.065  Eight DB2 variables in DB2ACCT and DB2STATS were only    
VMACDB2        input if LENQXST was GE 428, for DB2 Version 6, but the  
Apr 21, 1999   fields exist in DB2 Version 5.1. These variables         
                 QXSTNPRP QXSTDEXP QXSTDINV                             
               are now INPUT if LENQXST is GE 16, and the remainder of  
               the 6.1 fields are then input if LENQXST is GE 428.      
   Thanks to Ken Michalik, Kraft, USA.                                  
Change 17.064  The ASMIMSLG/ASMIMSL5 programs still had symbolic value  
ASMIMSLG       &DFSMS set to 0 (for DFP) that must be changed to one if 
ASMIMSL5       you have DF/SMS instead.  If you overlooked this value,  
Apr 20, 1999   you might read 107 out of 110 log tapes without error and
               then fail with 0C4 abends on the other three log files!  
               I have made the default now to be DF/SMS installed with: 
                    &DFSMS   SETB    1                                  
               in both programs (ASMIMSL6 already had 1 as its default).

Change 17.063  Reserved Change.                                         
Apr 20, 1999                                                            
Change 17.062  Comments only.  TMON data can be dumped in two modes, and
EXITMON6       MXG supports only the "Data-Image" format.  If the TMON  
Apr 20, 1999   data instead is dumped with their "Export-Import" format,
               an extra 104 bytes prefix each record.  Comments remind  
               you to create "Data-Image" format, but also provide an   
               example of how to use the INFILE's START=105 value to    
               strip off those extra bytes so MXG can process the badly 
               dumped data anyhow!                                      
   Thanks to Coen Wessels, UNICIBLE, SWITZERLAND.                       
Change 17.061  The DASD Allocation Monitor program had return code 4 in 
ASMDALO        its assembly, but runs fine on an OS/390 2.4 system with 
Apr 19, 1999   all of its UCBs below the 16MB line, while it 0C4's at   
               one site which has dynamic UCBs - we are investigating   
               and will update this text when more is known.            
   Thanks to Paul Parragio, U.S. Geological Survey, USA.                
Change 17.060  "Final?" enhancement to MXG 16.04 architecture defines a 
VMXGINIT       new &Wdddddd macro variable for the //WORK destination of
VMACXXXX       each MXG dataset, just like the &Pdddddd macro variables 
Apr 17, 1999   for the output "PDB" destination.  The macro _L and _W   
               are now defined with this syntax in their VMACs:         
                      MACRO _Ldddddd  &Pdddddd.DATASET %                
                      MACRO _Wdddddd  &Wdddddd.DATASET %                
               so any existing overrides of the _L or _W macros continue
               to work, but instead you can use the simpler syntax:     
                      %LET &Wdddddd = DDNAME ;                          
               to redirect that dataset to DDNAME.  That %LET can be    
               stored in your IMACKEEP member, or can be put ahead of   
               of the %INCLUDE program statement. I'm only sorry I did  
               not think of this in time to include in MXG 16.16!       
               This enhancement is transparent, unless you use USER=XYZ:
               There were 272 members EDITed for this change.           
                  Before, if you use // EXEC MXGSAS,OPTIONS='USER=XYZ'  
                  all datasets that SAS wrote by default to //WORK would
                  be sent to the XYZ DDname, but now, SAS sees a real   
                  DDNAME (yep, it happens to be "WORK", but SAS doesn't 
                  see that, so the datasets are not output to XYZ).     
                  Now, to send all //WORK datasets to the //XYZ DDname, 
                  you can re-initalize MXG and change the work default: 
                     %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(TYPExxxx);                       
                  and get the same effect as the USER=XYZ option.       
               Jan 2009:  The preceeding example to send //WORK to //XYZ
                          has not worked since 2000. See Change 18.148. 
                          The MXGWORK argument of %VMXGINIT was removed 
                          in Change 26.310.                             
               It took 240 minutes to locate and change the 2450 lines  
               in 272 members.  It then took 120 minutes to locate and  
               correct the 19 characters in 17 lines in 14 members that 
               had been incorrectly typed.  I had an error in 5.1% of   
               the members I edited, but that is only 0.7% of the lines 
Change 17.059  Support for APAR OW37708 and/or APAR OW38073 add four new
VMAC42         variables, SMF42BUF/BMX/LRU/UIC to the TYPE42TO dataset, 
Apr 16, 1999   with total and highwater mark of BMF buffers and BMF LRU.
               interval and cycles until castout.                       
Change 17.058  For RMM/EDGS records EDGATYPE R or S, there are two      
VMACEDGS       different sets of variables depending on MSRMSTID.  Now  
Apr 16, 1999   both sets are decoded, and new variables MSUSTNAM,       
               MSMEDIA and EDGATYPE are added to dataset EDGSSREC.      
   Thanks to Richard Fortenberry, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America, USA
Change 17.057 -Change 16.225 was incomplete; the INPUT of the variables 
VMACHSM        WFSCPUTM and WFSACCT was added in the ID+1 record but was
FORMATS        not added in the ID record, but since the FSR segment is 
Apr 16, 1999   now in the ID+1 record, there should be little impact,   
               unless you are missing the APAR that moved the segment.  
              -Format MGHSMFU was updated to include values 15 and 16,  
               for ABARS ABACKUP and ABARS ARECOVERY records.           
   Thanks to Richard Fortenberry, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America, USA
Change 17.056  Support for the index information in DB2 Type 102 subtype
VMAC102        22 for DB2 5 and later is now decoded and creates ten new
Apr 16, 1999   variables in dataset T102S022.                           
   Thanks to Scott Mcdonall, Southern California Electric, USA.         
Change 17.055  Support for NTSMF new Quota Server object creates new MXG
EXNTQTAS       dataset QUOTASRV.                                        
Apr 15, 1999                                                            
Change 17.054  Using UTILBLDP to create your tailored sysin for BUILDPDB
UTILBLDP       had errors and not clearly documented.  If your tailoring
Apr 15, 1999   generated a MACRO _Edddddd .... statement, it was missing
               an end comment on that line that cause a recursion error.
               If you added the TMNT (MXG Tape Mount) product records,  
               you got an OPEN failure because UTILBLDP forgot that TMNT
               records are in BUILDPDB by default.  The missing "*/" is 
               now created, and your request to add TMNT records will be
               used to set the _IDTMNT value without the OPEN failure,  
               so that observations are created in TYPETMNT dataset.    
               Comments were revised to document that you run %UTILBLDP 
               once to build an output text file, (BUILDMXG is now the  
               recommended name, and the recommended destination is in  
               your USERID.SOURCLIB).  Then that "BUILDMXG" file with   
               your tailoring changes is used instead of the BUILDPDB   
               member in your daily job, either by pointing the SYSIN   
               of the daily job at BUILDMXG file:                       
               or by replacing the %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(BUILDPDB); in your 
               daily PDB job with    %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(BUILDMXG);       
                  If you name the output file "BUILDPDB", it cannot be  
                  put in the //SOURCLIB concatenation, because it will  
                  recursively include itself.  It could be put in a PDS 
                  that is not in the SOURCLIB concatenation and pointed 
                  to in that source library, but using BUILDMXG as the  
                  member/file name for the output of UTILBLDP is much   
                  safer and clearer.

Change 17.053  Typo in VMXGINIT caused _S110 (sort all type 110s) to    
TYPS110        fail with APPARENT SYMBOLIC REFERENCE PCICCF9 error. The 
VMXGINIT       two occurrences of PCICCF0 in VMXGINIT were changed to   
Apr 15, 1999   PCICCF9.  The ultimate cause of the error, however, was  
Jul 20, 1999   that the _S110 macro was not used in the TYPS110 member, 
               so it was not fully tested; now, _S110 will execute when 
               member TYPS110 (to sort all datasets) is tested.         
               Jul 20: Typos in text: PCICFCn changed to PCICCFn.

Change 17.052  Variable A08DURAT was missing in CICS/ESA 4.1 and later, 
VMAC110        because the timestamps used to create it moved from the  
Apr 14, 1999   STID=37 to the STID=39, and I overlooked creating the    
               duration variable from them.  In addition, A08DURAT is   
               now truly the duration, since now the start and stop     
               variables are datetimestamps; previously they were only  
               a 24-hour time of day, so its calculation is direct:

Change 17.051  A MACKEEP= example in Change 16.134 and DOCMXG does not  
ChangeSS       work safely, and was removed.  The bad example showed    
DOCMXG         that you could sometimes tailor an _Edddddd exit macro   
Apr 14, 1999   without using a semicolon and avoid the %QUOTE( ), but   
               that does not always work, depending on the contents of  
               the EXdddddd member used by the _Edddddd macro.  Instead,
               the second (and good) example showed that you should add 
               IF ... THEN DO;   %include (member);  END;  logic around 
               the include of the EXdddddd member, and how to put the   
               MACKEEP= argument inside the %QUOTE ( ) function.  This  
               is always safe, and only that second example was kept.

Change 17.050  Using the new PDB.ASUMTAPE as input to member ASUMTMNT   
ASUMTAPE       can cause INVALID DO CONTROL error for "MISSEDMNT" mounts
Apr 14, 1999   because their TMNTTIME and TENDTIME variables were left  
               missing.  But these MISSEDMNT events are all very fast   
               mounts, which had physical mount time in less than one   
               sample interval (max 2 seconds by default, may be 0.5),  
               so I have chosen to set the TMNTTIME and TENDTIME equal  
               to the ALOCSTRT datetimestamp for MISSEDMNT events in the
               PDB.ASUMTAPE dataset to protect member ASUMTMNT.

Change 17.047  Some 24 variables with MGBYTES format also had labels    
VMACDCOL       with "(MGBYTES)", which misled some to think the field   
VMACTSOM       contained "mega-bytes".  MXG variables formatted with    
VMACNETP       the MGBYTES format contain bytes, but are converted when 
Apr 13, 1999   printed to display their value in K/M/G/T-suffix for     
               Kilo/Mega/Giga/Tera-byte (i.e., 1024*) units.  Because of
               this confusion, the "(MGBYTES)" in the LABEL of all      
               variables was removed.  The LABEL of a variable describes
               the contents of that variable; the FORMAT of a variable  
               describes its display format, and implicitly its internal
               units (MGBYTES in bytes, TIME/DATETIME in seconds, etc.).
                  I just read that the International Standards body has 
                  defined new prefixes of KIBI/MEBI/GIBI/TEBI to        
                  explicitly describe "binary thousands", or units of   
                  1024-per-"thousand", so the MGBYTES format formally   
                  supports those units with its "K/M/G/T/P" suffixes!   
Change 17.046  ML-19 of ASMTAPES supresses the TMNT005E messages that   
ASMTAPES       should not have been printed.  Originally a message for  
Apr 12, 1999   an unexpected event, these messages occur with very fast 
               mounts.  We detected that an ASID has a tape allocation, 
               but when we (slightly later) scan to that UCB, it no     
               longer is owned by the ASID number we got at the start   
               of the sample.  Fast scratch VTS mounts now cause this   
               message to print in flurries, but the message has no     
               impact on the SMF records created by ASMTAPES, which are 
               just fine even when there are TMNT0005E log messages.    
               This correction returns to the caller with an RC-8, which
               will cause the main logic to simply continue processing  
               with the next tape drive.  At the next sample interval   
               we'll detect the ASID change and cut the allocation for  
               the job that used to have the drive allocated.

Change 17.045  Changing the Interval of PDB.ASUM70PR with _DURSET macro 
ASUM70PR       no longer worked, because of internal changes to VMXGSUM 
Apr 12, 1999   to the &DATETIME parameter.  To synchronize ASUM70PR with
               RMFINTRV, IMACRMFI's _DURSET macro was used in a MYTIME= 
               argument, instead of using the VMXGSUM interval settings.
               Additionally a SHIFT variable was needed to be created,  
               complicating the old logic.  This redesign removed the   
               MYTIME= and INTERVAL=, and instead substitues the _DURSET
               and IMACSHFT statements directly in the INCODE= argument.
               This is both simpler and forces synchronization with the 
               PDB.RMFINTRV that is demanded in the later merge.

VMAC42         of SMF42GAI and SMF42GBI, lines with   +3   were inserted
Apr  9, 1999   to skip over the remaining three bytes of those four byte
               fields.  Type 42 subtype 19 timestamps SMF42JNE/SMF42JNF 
               are now input as &PIB.8.3 instead of 8.6. Many times that
               were documented as microsec in OS/390 R2.6 SMF manual are
               now documented as milliseconds in OS/390 R2.7 manual, and
               most were caught in MXG 16.16, but these two were missed.

               there was no Matching Allocate, or Dismount if neither   
               an Allocate or a Mount was found.   MXG sets SYSTEM='ALL'
               internally so that grouping is done by DEVNR, but now the
               true system is reset into variable SYSTEM.               
               See Change 17.010 for more complete details on why you

VMAC64         highest byte address, but the highest CI number, and     
Mar 29, 1999   so MXG stored HIGHRBA into HIGHCIEX, and tried to set the

               now, the spelling was corrected and the block of code    
               for extended format datasets was moved to after the INPUT
               of CISIZE, and for extended format datasets, now the

               BUILD005/BUIL3005 into your IMACPDB or IMACKEEP member   
               and blanking out the unwanted variables.  But I realized 
               that by locating all _PDBnnnn macro references to the end
               of the KEEP= list (some were, some weren't!), you can now
               use the new ADDnnnn macro variable either to add new or  
               to drop old variables from those three PDB datasets:     
                  %LET ADD30U4= NEWVAR1 NEWVAR2 DROP= UNWANT1 UNWANT2 ; 
                  %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(BUILDPDB);                          
               Since the &ADDnnnn token is at the end of each _PDBnnnn  
               definition, adding variables worked no matter where the  
               _PDBnnnn macro occurred after the KEEP=, but the _PDBnnnn
               reference must be at the end of the KEEP= list to safely 
               use the above syntax to both drop and add variables.     
                  In truth, you could have used the ADDnnnn macro to    
                  add and drop, even without my relocating, but you     
                  would have had to protect any variables that followed 
                  the _PDBnnnn reference in the BUILxxxx member by the  
                  use of this syntax for following variables:           
                    %LET ADDnnnn= V1 V2 DROP= X1 X2 KEEP= ;             
                  because SAS accepts this syntax:                      
                    DATASET (KEEP=list  DROP=list  KEEP=list )

Change 17.024  I can't seem to ever get VMACIMSA right.  Line 1374 has a
VMACIMSA       missing semicolon.  Actually, the semicolon was in column
Mar 25, 1999   73, which MXG truncates under MVS because S=72 is set in 
               CONFIG, but my testing under ASCII accepted the longer   
               record. Shift the line left and put the semicolon in 72. 
   Thanks to Pete Young, University of Toronto, CANADA.                 
Change 17.023 -CPU time for Pre-emptible SRBS running in this ASID, and 
TYPE79         the CPU time for Pre-emptible SRBs running on behalf of  
TYPS79         this ASID, and the Total CPU time consumed in this ASID  
VMAC79         are now variables R791ASST/R791PHTM/R791TCPC in TYPE791  
Mar 25, 1999   dataset, and R792ASST/R792PHTM/R792TCPC in TYPE792.  The 
Mar 28, 1999   fields were added by OS/390 Version 2 Release 5.         
              -In validating the TYPE791 dataset, I note that it has    
               mostly-accumulated fields, so the _STY791 Sort macro now 
               includes additional data steps to deaccumulate the data, 
               and the deaccumulation is automatic if you use member    
               TYPS79.  Or you can use TYPE79 and then invoke _STY791,  
               so that dataset TYPE791 contains valid interval values.  
              -Support for FIBERCON/FICON new measures were added.  See 
               text of Change 17.027 for details of new measurements, as
               the same variables were added to TYPE73 as to TYPE79C.   
              -In TYPE79 and TYPS79, the line with  _CDE79S  was deleted
               because it did not belong there; fortunately it had no   
               external impact, except to confuse my debugging!

Change 17.022  IMS 6.1 only, MXG 16.16 still was wrong.  Six lines with 
Mar 24, 1999   so that timestamp values are not missing.  While IMS 6.1 
               records had been validated with MXG 16.09, VMACIMSA was  
               later "cleaned up" to create unique julian date fields to
               examine for debug that were not kept, and that revision  
               introduced this error in MXG 16.16.                      
   Thanks to Chris Weston, SAS Institute Cary, USA.                     
Change 17.021  HSM and TMS Julian Date variables are internally Y2K ok, 
VMACHSM        but their default print format was still "6.", causing a 
VMACTMS5       julian date of 2000001 to print as 2E6.  The default     
Mar 19, 1999   print format is now changed from "6." to "7." in both    
               members, but the MXG 16.16-built datasets are still      
               completely valid internally, and you can add a statement 
               FORMAT DSRDATE 7.; in your reports to print the seven    
               digit julian dates.

Change 17.020  Typo in the _CDE102 macro causes error if TYPE102 is used
VMAC102        to create all 300+ possible IFICIDs. The text _C012297   
Mar 19, 1999   should have been _C102297.                               
   Thanks to Jules Troxler, Swiss National Bank, SWITZERLAND.           
Change 17.019  The definition of HSM macro _DIFFHSM was relocated from  
DIFFHSM        the DIFFHSM member to the VMACHSM member so that you can 
VMACHSM        redefine the _DIFFHSM macro if you only want one HSM     
DOCMXG         dataset.  For example, after this change, to create only 
Mar 19, 1999   the HSMDSRST dataset, you could use:                     
                 %LET MACKEEP=                                          
                    MACRO _WHSMDSR HSMDSRST %                           
                    MACRO _DIFFHSM _SHSMDSR %                           
               Bob also found a type in DOCMXG examples; the second use 
               of _N110 example needed a second percent sign to end the 
               MACRO _ECICTRN definition as it is inside the %QUOTE.    
   Thanks to Bob Barton, DaimlerChrysler, GERMANY.                      
Change 17.018  NPM 2.4 only. Datasets NPMINSES and NPMEVSAL have trash  
VMAC28         in LSCDxxxx variables.  IBM added fields for IP address  
Mar 16, 1999   and IP Port Number, but I misread the DSECT and thought  
               they were inserted; in fact they overlaid existing fields
               causing the INPUT statement to be miis-aligned with data.
               There are two places that needed correction.             
               The original code in the first location was:             
                         SLNKNAME  $EBCDIC8.

                         LSCDIPNM $EBCDIC15.                            
                   INPUT SLUSUBPU  $EBCDIC8.                            
               and the correct code in that location now is:            
                         SLNKNAME  $EBCDIC8.                            
                   IF COFTYPE='SCD' AND LSCDREVL GE 3 THEN INPUT        
                   +M16  LSCDIPNM $EBCDIC15.                            
                   INPUT SLUSUBPU  $EBCDIC8.                            
               to back up 16 bytes and input LSCDIPNM correctly.        
               The original code in the second location was:            
                         VRNUM       &PIB.2.

               and the correct code in that location now is:            
                         VRNUM       &PIB.2.

Change 17.017  Cosmetic.  The BY list for the TYPETMNT dataset in the   
ASUMTMNT       ASUMTMNT and TRNDTMNT members had "DATETIME", but that   
Mar 15, 1999   can now be changed to the real variable name of TMNTTIME 
Apr  5, 1999   (changes to VMXGSUM several versions ago made that change
               possible), and the sort order in TRNDTMNT was changed    
               changed from ... SHIFT DEVICE ... to ...DEVICE SHIFT ... 
               to be consistent with the prior sorts.  In addition, the 
               ID=TMNTTIME, statement has to be deleted for this change.
   Thanks to John Sheridan, Aer Lingus, IRELAND.                        
Change 17.016  RMM EDGR dataset EDGRDEXT has zero observations because

   Thanks to John Paul, Capital Blue Cross, USA.                        
Change 17.015  The input dataset was WEEK.PRINTER but member ASUMPRTR   
TRNDPRTR       now creates WEEK.ASUMPRTR, so the input was changed to   
Mar 11, 1999   WEEK.ASUMPRTR.  The output remains TREND.PRINTER.        
   Thanks to John McCray, Huntington Service Company, USA.              
Change 17.014  Documentation and revision.  The original 16.16 example  
UTILBLDP       did not properly handle SMF records that had fixed ID,   
Mar 24, 1999   such as IBM type 39 records, and there was a missing     
               end comment sign.                                        
Change 17.013  Dataset TYPE21/PDB.TAPES variable OPEN is always blank   
VMAC21         now (MXG 16.04+), but it used to always be "INPUT".  In  
Mar  9, 1999   fact, the DCBOFLGS field that is tested to set OPEN is   
               not valid, since it always contains nulls in our data.   
               (IBM documentation says that if no bit is on in that     
               field, it was not available to the SMF record).  Since   
               the type 21 record now contains BYTEREAD and BYTEWRIT,   
               which are clearer indicators of activity, I will leave   
               the code as it is, with OPEN=blank.  If IBM every fixes  
               the record to retain the DCBOFLGS, then the MXG code     
               will populate OPEN.  In addition, if the new ASUMTAPE    
               is enhanced to merge in TYPE1415 records, the actual     
               OPEN value will be available with that analysis.

Change 17.012  RACF type 80 record with optional RACFTYPE=7 user segment
Mar  8, 1999   the statement INPUT +RACFDLN @; that is immediately after

Change 17.011  MXG 16.09-MXG 16.16.  TYPEIMSA processing is wrong, with 
VMACIMSA       missing values for STRTTIME.  There is one instance of   
Mar  8, 1999   DATEJUL(YYYDDD) that has only three YYYs, and that must  
               be changed to four YYYYs: DATEJUL(YYYYDDD).

Change 17.010  MXGTMNT can miss some mounts or can create false ones!!  
ASUMTAPE       The MXG Tape Mount and Tape Allocation Monitor program   
ASUMTMNT       MXGTMNT (in member ASMTAPES), has two newly discovered   
Mar 11, 1999   serious errors in dataset PDB.TYPETMNT:                  
Apr  5, 1999                                                            
                - extra tape mount event records may be created during  
                  allocation recovery with a NOHOLD reply, and          
                - some very fast VTS scratch mounts are missed.         
               Fortunately, those errors can be corrected with the new  
               ASUMTAPE program, which will read these PDB datasets:    
                  PDB.TYPETMNT - Sampled Tape Mount Events              
                  PDB.TYPETALO - Non-sampled Tape Allocation Events     
                  PDB.TAPES    - Rename of TYPE21, IBM Dismount Tape    
               to create the new PDB.ASUMTAPE dataset, that not only    
               discards any extra mounts, but recognizes missed-mounts  
               by merging the Allocate with Dismount events, so that the
               ownership, durations, plus bytes read/written is known!  
               This major enhancement should have been written long ago.
               A "tape event" is created in PDB.ASUMTAPE for every tape 
               volume dismounted.  An event starts with the allocation  
               for a volume and ends with the dismount of that volume.  
               An event could be an allocate/mount/dismount with one    
               open/close of one dataset on that volume, or a tape event
               could have opened many datasets on a volume during one   
               mount of the volume, or an event could allocate a volume 
               and mount it in one step and then retain the volume and  
               use it many times in many subsequent steps until dismount
               of the volume.  All these are recognized and handled.    
               These are important variables in the new PDB.ASUMTAPE:   
                 STATUS   - MATCHED/MISSEDMNT/TY21ONLY status           
                 VOLSER   - Volume Serial Number                        
                 DEVNR    - Device Number (a/k/a UCB Address)           
                 DDNAME   - DDNAME of first use of this volume          
                 INITTIME - Step Initiate time of first step to use     
                 PROGRAM  - PROGRAM from first step to use volume       
                 STEPNAME - STEPNAME from first step to use volume      
                 ALOCSTRT - Start Time of allocation for this volume    
                 ALOCVLTM - Duration this volume was allocated          
                 TMNTTIME - Timestamp when Mount was issued             
                 TAPMNTTM - Duration that it took to mount the tape     
                 TMTDTIME - Timestamp when Mount was satisfied          
                 TAPMTDTM - Duration when the tape was mounted          
                 TY21TIME - Timestamp when Volume was Dismounted        
                 BYTEREAD - Bytes Read                                  
                 BYTEWRIT - Bytes Written                               
                 SIOCOUNT - SSCH/SIO Count, number of I/O operations    
                 ERRORxxx - Tape Permanent/Temporary/Erase error counts 
                 JOB      - JOB/READTIME/JESNR, and all of the other    
                            information from the first allocate record  
                            and from the mount record.                  
               To correct the errors, all you need do is to insert this 
               statement after your %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(BUILDPDB):        
                  %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(ASUMTAPE);                          
               and then use PDB.ASUMTAPE instead of PDB.TYPETMNT in your
               reports and analysis programs.                           
               If you already %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(ASUMTMNT), to create the
               PDB.TAPEMNTS from PDB.TYPETMNT, you will need to add the 
               include of ASUMTAPE before ASUMTMNT:                     
                  %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(ASUMTAPE,ASUMTMNT);                 
               so that the new PDB.ASUMTAPE dataset will be built and   
               then the revised ASUMTMNT member will create PDB.TAPEMNTS
               from the new PDB.ASUMTAPE instead of from PDB.TYPETMNT.  
               You can correct past PDBs by running this job for each   
               PDB, starting with the oldest PDB first, because those   
               "inflight" allocations and mounts are written to the new 
               SPIN.SPINALOC and SPIN.SPINMOUN datasets at the end of   
               ASUMTAPE's execution, and are then used as input for its

               Here are the details of the errors, their cause, etc:    
               See additional enhancements in Change 17.077.            
              -MXG SMF Mount records are created for some mounts that   
               never happened.  Jobs that are in allocation recovery    
               that receive WAIT and NOHOLD replies have mount records  
               written when message IEF433D "NOHOLD" is printed (but    
               there are more IEF433D messages than extra records).     
               Many of these extra mount records have missing JESNR or  
               READTIME, which are required for validation of matchup,  
               so those are output to READMSNG dataset and not used.    
               Some of these extra mount records had VOLSER='UNKNWN',   
               (MXGTMNT could not get the VOLSER), and originally they  
               were discarded until Change 17.077.  UNKNWN are now used 
               to build PDB.ASUMTAPE, and also output in dataset UNKNWN.
               just in case they are needed.  The EXTRAMNT dataset      
               counts the additional extra mounts that were detected and
               discarded in ASUMTAPE.  One site had 110                 
               UNKNWN+READMSNG+EXTRAMNT with 745 true tape mounts, while
               a second had 406+507+179=1092 false mounts with 8166 true
               mounts, so the impact is severe.                         
               While just discovered, this error in MXGTMNT has probably
               been there all along.  We are presently unable to locate 
               any flags in OS/390 that can differentiate these IEF433D 
               mounts as false mounts; all of the bits available to us  
               when we sample the UCB status during the IEF433D state   
               look just like the bits during a real mount event, but we
               are still investigating corrections to the monitor.      
              -MXG SMF Mount records are missed for some very fast VTS  
               scratch mounts, even with 1/2 second sampling.  MXGTMNT  
               missed 219 VTS scratch mounts with 2 second sampling, but
               missed only 19 with 1/2 second sampling.                 
               Fast VTS mounts that were too fast and were missed by    
               MXGTMNT sampling are now captured and identified with    
               JOB/JESNR/etc by merging their Dismount and Allocate,    
               although the durations TAPMNTTM will be set to zero      
               and TAPMTDTM will be set to ALOCVLTM for those mounts    
               with STATUS='MISSEDMNT'.                                 
              -Two new code members were added and one was revised:     
               ASUMTAPE reads a PDB library to create the PDB.ASUMTAPE  
               dataset from the PDB.TYPETMNT/TYPETALO/TAPES datasets    
               that are build by BUILDPDB.  ASUMTAPE is in JCLPDB6 so   
               that it will be build automatically with that JCL.       
               ASMFTAPE will read SMF data to create the PDB.ASUMTAPE   
               dataset, for sites that don't run BUILDPDB:              
                    // EXEC MXGSAS

                    //PDB DD DSN=the.output.library,DISP=(,CATLG)...    
                    //SPIN DD DSN=the.inflight.spin,DISP=(,CATLG)       
                      %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(ASMFTAPE);                      
               ASUMTMNT creates the PDB.TAPEMNTS summary dataset that is
               used in your tape mount reporting.  It is now revised to 
               use PDB.ASUMTAPE as its input, instead of PDB.TYPETMNT,  
               if there are observations in PDB.ASUMTAPE. Thus you can  
               create the corrected PDB.ASUMTAPE dataset and use it in  
               place of the incorrect PDB.TYPETMNT dataset.             
               A print of the PDB.ASUMTAPE dataset can be produced by   
               the macro _TAPERPT, using this syntax:                   
                 %INCLUDE SOURCLIB(ASxxTAPE); _TAPERPT;                 
               These WORK datasets are available for examination:       
                - From the TYPETMNT dataset these defective observations
                  were not used in the combine logic, but instead were  
                  output to these work datasets:                        
                   READMSNG   Mount missing READTIME or JESNR.          
                   UNKNWN     Mounts with VOLSER=UNKNWN, usually false  
                              mounts, but mounts that were not opened,  
                              like the last volume of multi-unit alloc  
                              for scratch tape that was pre-mounted but 
                              was not used.                             
                - From the TYPETALO dataset these defective observations
                  were not used in the combine logic, but instead were  
                  output to these work datasets:                        
                    ALLOCBAD  Allocation with JESNR or JOB missing.     
                - From the combine of Allocate, Mount, and Dismount:    
                 EXTRAMNT - Extra Mount or Mount with no Dismount, they 
                            were discarded and not counted nor used.    
                 BK2BKDIS - Back to Back Dismounts without alloc/mount. 
                            Has not occurred in testing, but coded for. 
                 ALLOCNOT - Allocation event that was not used; no mount
                            nor dismount found.  Could identify jobs    
                            that are wasting a tape drive, but most of  
                            these are partial allocation events during  
                            allocation recovery. A job needs two drives;
                            it gets the first but can't get its second. 
                            We see the allocate event record for that   
                            first allocate, but there was no mount nor  
                            dismount because the job never allocated.   
                            The job goes to the bottom of allocation    
                            recovery, and another job is now allocated  
                            to the drive.  Typically there is a series  
                            of back-to-back allocates for alternating   
                            job names on the same device as jobs bounce 
                 ALLOCRET - Allocation event that was retained.  Very   
                            common to see A,M,A,A,A,A,D sequence for    
                            a tape that was mounted once and then passed
                            and retained across multiple steps.         
                 DEBUG    - Zero obs unless you enable, typically for a 
                            single device, to examine what records come 
                            in what sequence.                           
                 SPUNMOUN - Inflight Mounts, held for tomorrow, they get
                            written out to SPIN.SPINMOUN.               
                 SPUNALOC - Inflight Mounts, held for tomorrow, they get
                            written out to SPIN.SPINALOC.               
                The logic expects that a DEVNR is a unique tape drive,  
                i.e. no two tape devices have the same DEVNR/UCBADDRESS.
                By default the variable SYSTEM is set to 'ALL ', so that
                the logical merge is by DEVNR, because the IBM dismount 
                record can be written on a different system than the    
                system where the allocate and mount were written.       
                   If you do have two tape devices with the same DEVNR  
                   on two different systems, you can group your SMF data
                   for systems that share and for systems that don't and
                   run the ASxxTAPE program separately against each set 
                   of SMF records, or better, you will be able to update
                   a new format table that MXG will use to reset the    
                   variable SYSTEM to separate the shared and non-shared
                   devices.  Contact Merrill to be the test site!       
                The implementation requires the //SPIN DD exist in your 
                JCL, and writes out to the //SPIN DD the SPINMOUN and   
                SPINALOC datasets, holding the inflight mount/allocate  
                records to be reintroduced in tomorrows processing.     
                The SPINCNT value in IMACSPIN is not used for ASUMTAPE, 
                because new allocations will eventually either match up 
                or confirm that the inflight allocate can be discarded. 
                I have done a lot of testing, with data from several    
                systems with different hardware, but this is a brand new
                algorithm with lots of opportunities for validation.    
                I am highly confident that the PDB.ASUMTAPE matchup is  
                okay, and almost as confident that all other possible   
                non-matchups are decoded correctly into //WORK.         
                This program is validated for JES2 only, at present.    
                It does not fail with JES3, and does match the MXGTMNT  
                records from JES3 with the TYPE 21 records, but initial 
                JES3 tests suggest that because JES3 MDS allocations are
                never seen by MXGTMNT, this program may not be as useful
                for JES3.  More JES3 testing is planned and this note   
                will be revised when more is known about JES3.          
                These sequences of Alloc/Mount/Dismount events are seen:
                 Normal:                      A M D                     
                 Multi-Volume                 A M D M D M D             
                 Retained Allocation          A M A A A A D             
                 Dynamic Allocate             A M D A M D

Change 17.009  Support for deaccumulation of TYPE30_6 data.  These funny
VMAC30         subtype 6 records are written for address spaces that are
Mar  4, 1999   started before SMF is up, and contain accumulated values 
               for most fields (but not all, and IBM doesn't document   
               which are accumulated and which are not) that require the
               SORT and DIF() operation to produce valid interval data. 
               The JOB names that typically write subtype 6 records are:
                 PCAUTH  RACFDS  RASP    SMXC SYSBMAS  TNF     TRACE    
               The dataset sort macro _STY30U6 for TYPE30_6 was revised 
               to deaccumulate the TYPE30_6 data into PDB.TYPE30_6, and 
               comments in VMAC30 list which variables are kept, dif()d,
               which are not, and which are always missing values.  Only
               the PROD, ID, UREC, CPU, STOR, and PERF segments exist.  
               The change also corrects  variables INTBTIME/INTETIME in 
               TYPE30_6.  Because subtype 6 records contain nulls for   
               the SMF30IST timestamp from which GMTOFF30 is calculated,
               INTB/INTE were never converted from GMT in TYPE30_6.  By 
               revising the logic so that INTBTIME=SMF30IST only when   
               SMF30IST is non-missing, and by only calculating GMTOFF30
               only when SMF30IST is non-missing, the GMTOFF30 from the 
               prior type 30 (non-subtype-6) can be used to convert GMT.

Change 17.006  Support for DB2 type 102 subtype 199 adds QW0199xx fields
VMAC102        that report DB2 Dataset I/O statistics (avg/min/max delay
Mar  2, 1999   time in millisecs for sync/async/cached I/O plus counts).
               There is an observation for every Piece or Partition of  
               every DB2 dataset (DBID/OBID), but only if the piece/part
               averaged more than one I/O per second in the interval.   
               Looks interesting, and I too have used a one-I/O-per-sec 
               threshold to separate the wheat from the chaff.          
                  One test record out of ten has QW0199xx fields missing
                  because it has only two segments (QWHSNSDA=2) when    
                  there should be three.  To be investigated with IBM.
